No matter what iOS version you use or what iPhone or iPad you use. This is absolutely not possible to rename any Bluetooth device that is connected to your iOS device.

Sometimes, we need to edit a particular device name. For example, you are connected to 10 devices and 3 of them have the same name. Or, you have more than one Bluetooth speakers in your room. No matter what the situation is, you will get confused when you have to send a file to a particular device or play music through a particular speaker over Bluetooth.
