Your iOS device has several numerical identifiers associated with it. Two of the most important are the device’s serial number and International Mobile Station Equipment Identity (IMEI) number. You can use both to identify your phone when you’re scheduling repairs, activating or deactivating devices, or even reporting a device lost or stolen.
Android TV is Google’s attempt at taking over the living room, and with some units being available for under $99, it’s not unheard of for users to have more than one box. The problem is, when multiple devices identify themselves identically on the network, how are you supposed to know which is which? Changing the device name is super simple, and something that you’ll definitely want to do if you have more than one identical Android TV box in your house.
