What do the 2 in “iPhone (2)” do in find my iPhone application?


Under the “Find My iPhone” app, one of our phones listed now has a 2 next to it:
iPhone (2)
Listed as above. What does it mean?

This means you have two devices that use the same name. He has to do something to try and separate them, so he adds a (2).

This can also happen if a single device is reset or configured as a new device, but it is actually the same. The initial device is preserved but a new device has been created to attempt to differentiate.
