    I would like to rename my iPhone so that the "S" symbol displays correctly to other devices, such as the Bluetooth display in my car, for example.

    The best that I've found so far is

    Rich's iPhone 5ⓢ

    Does anyone know where to get the "S" symbol with a square border, like on the packaging?

    The bluetooth display in your car may be unable to display that character, if it even exists.

    Apple doesn't even use the character on its own website outside of images.

    PC or Mac?

    Though someone above did post it in the thread, you can copy and paste that to iTunes or your phone.

    You can't.

    That symbol is not a character symbol. It is a bitmap image.

    plain text:
    The most correct way is to use a lower case s when using text like your car display.

    "iPhone 5s"

    Simply "Rich's iPhone" or "Richs iPhone" is far cleaner. That's how mine appears on my router, and other things.

    It is actually Unicode, more specifically a "Combining Enclosing Keycap"

    There are many more examples of that unicode (though the requested enclosed S is not on this link)
