    Hi Guys,

    Anyone know how I can change native application names?

    I don't know if its just me? but I'm unable to change the names for native applications & even apps I've downloaded from App Store..

    You can not change the name of applications on the iPhone. If that is what you are looking for.

    Select the Application. Then Get Info. Click on the permissions lock to unlock it. The click on the gear wheel, add your Admin user to the list. Make the admin user the owner of the App. Then you can change the name.

    One quick way is to create and alias and put the name that you want to the alias.
