Rename Bluetooth Devices for Easy Management

Rename Bluetooth Devices for Easy Management

You may have noticed that when you add a Bluetooth device to your Mac, a name is applied to it automatically. Apple devices will likely have sensible names, like Magic Mouse 2, but this isn’t the case with most non-Apple devices. You end up with a device called something really random like f023cp37. The good news is macOS lets you rename most Bluetooth devices, including pointing devices, keyboards, earbuds, and headphones. To rename your Bluetooth devices, Open System Preferences > Bluetooth, Control- or right-click a device, and choose Rename. In the dialog that appears, enter the new name. I hope that helps!
