With iOS 7, Apple made a decision that it would certainly take a much more individual method to names. You might have discovered it yourself. You receive an iMessage or a plain content message for instance, and in the message conversation you notice that the name is displayed as just the sender’s very first name, instead of their complete name. Which is great, so long as you only have a single person that you speak with that said has that name.

The problem is, in the real life, you most likely don’t.

Fortunately, for those people with greater than three people that we like send out message to, there’s an option inside the iOS Setup application that will certainly either return iOS’s name conventions back to their previous splendors, or screen something different depending upon exactly what you wish to select.

As a matter of fact, you can even tell iOS to like to utilize labels, which is why when I obtain a message from my better half it claims “Rach” rather compared to “Rachel” although that’s what her name is in my Get in touches with. It’s wonderful for “Papa” and others, as well.

Naturally, if you desire to you can even transform all this short name nonsense off must you so wish, and an easy flick of a change will certainly do just that. The option is genuinely yours.

There are lots of modifications in iOS 7 that we can not modify, however the brief name addition is certainly among them. It’s amazing what you could locate by simply flicking through the different options in the Settings application.
