The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Re: Sound link SL III

Hello Buck197 and welcome to the Community! 

Thank you for reaching out. To rename a speaker via Bluetooth, you will need to do this via the Bluetooth settings on the iPhone when the speaker is connected. 

You can check out this article from Apple's support page here, to see how this can be done.

I hope this helps!
