How to rename your HomePod (and the room it’s in)

When you live in a household with as many Apple gadgets as I do, you can’t just leave the default names or identifying them will get confusing fast. If you’ve got more then one HomePod, for example, you’re going to need to give each one a custom name so you don’t get them mixed up. Or, maybe you just want to give your HomePod a clever name. Here’s how.

HomePod is just too boring sounding for me. One of the first things I did was change its name … to the Death Star.

  1. Launch the Home app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Long press on your HomePod accessory button.
  3. Tap Details in the bottom right.

    Launch the Home app, then long press on your HomePod, then tap Details

  4. Tap where it reads HomePod.
  5. Type in the new name.
  6. Tap Done when you’re finished.

The change will sync across all your connected apps and devices.
