I have two iMacs (one at home, the other in the office), an iPhone and a new iPad mini.


It is confusing to see the identical names of my two iMacs when I search on FIND MY iPHONE. 


Is there any way to rename any or all of the devices to something that makes more sense?


Thanks in advance.



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion, 21.5 Inch, Mid 2011

    Of course. What you see in Find my iPhone is the Mac's name. You can change the Mac's name in System Preferences > Sharing, so the name of your Mac will change.


    If you want to change the name of your iPad or iPhone, open Settings > General > About, where you will be able to change their name
