why is my iPhone called "iPhone" rather than my name ex: Cynthia's iPhone?
disheartened2017

I recently had my iPhone 5s replaced and the replacement phone's name is just "iPhone" rather than personalized with my name, such as "Cynthia's iPhone"

As a matter of fact my old defective iPhone 5s was only referred to as "iPhone" also. If anyone knows why this is I would appreciate the help. My old backups (from my old iPhone) are still listed in iTunes and are referred to as Cynthia's iPhone, but new phone is just called iPhone?

Thanks for your help.
