IPad – Why did Apple assign the wrong name to the AppleID, and how to change it

apple-idicloudipad

I'm setting up an iPad for Mom's birthday. In the process, I created her an AppleID, and typed in her name. Signing into iCloud using her ID shows my name instead. How do I fix this?

Best Answer

If the name on the Apple ID or the billing address is incorrect, you can fix it at https://appleid.apple.com

You can edit the name on the account here... Edit Account

And you can edit the billing name here... Edit Payment

(Look for the Edit buttons.)
