I tried out another iPhone but returned it and now my iPhone 14 pro is called iPhone (2) in iCloud. Everything is working fine I only swapped out SIM after setting up the returned iPhone form ten automatic setup form my 14 Pro. I would like to simply change name of my 14 Pro back to what it was ie without the suffix (2) Cannot see how to do this. Anyone help please ?

Give it some time (at least 24 hours) to sync. If after 24 hours you still don't see the name updated in iCloud, try signing out of iCloud on your iPhone and then back in again (do the same on your computer or wherever you're logging into iCloud to check the device name).
