Rename Bluetooth name for SoundLink Mini 1 on Iphone

We have two SoundLink Mini 1 speakers and both speakers have the same name on the Bluetooth list on our Iphones which makes it difficult to find which speaker we want to choose. Is it possible to rename the Bluethooth name of the SoundLink Mini speakers?

Hi Bimsbums, 

 

Thanks for reaching out welcome to the community. 

 

As the SoundLink Mini does not utilise the Bose Connect app, you are unable to change the name of your product through this platform. However, I have taken a look and it would appear you may be able to alter this through your Iphone. If you take a look at this link from Apple support, this will provide you with full instructions. 

 

I hope this helps. Do let us know if you have any further questions. 

 

Kind regards,

Re: Rename Bluetooth name for SoundLink Mini 1 on Iphone

This solution does not work for the Mini II Soundlink. There is no option to rename the Mini II Soundlink from within iOS. This is a tremendous inconvenience for customers like me who liked the product so much that they have multiple speakers in different locations. I don't see why it would be so difficult to fix this interoperability issue.

I can understand how this may be frustrating, @MesserschmidtJ. If the Apple support article did not help, then this option may not be available. Please continue to follow our socials and the Bose Community, to be the first to know about feature releases and firmware updates.

 

Do you have any other queries regarding your speaker? How has it been for you so far, are you enjoying your listening experience?
