NavigationItem in Master/Detail application

I wrote a Master/Detail Application by using the Master/Detail template of XCode. After starting the app, the title of the navigation button for the master view is just "Master". Now I waant tio rename that button, but unfortunately I don't know how to access this button.
In appdelegate.m there is the following code to initialize the views:

MasterViewController *masterViewController = [[MasterViewController alloc] init];
UINavigationController *masterNavigationController = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:masterViewController];

DetailViewController *detailViewController = [[DetailViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"DetailViewController" bundle:nil];
UINavigationController *detailNavigationController = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:detailViewController]

I tried these ways without success:

masterViewController.navigationItem.title = @"newTitle";


masterNavigationController.navigationItem.title = @"newTitle";

As I wasn't sure, if the name of the button is just the title of the view behind idt, I also tried that:

masterViewController.title = @"newTitle";

Nothing worked. But as the title of the button is "Master" and I definitely didn't set it, I believe there must be some way to set it. Does anyone know how to do it?

Just to show the button:

If you would have created Master/Detail application using Master/Detail Template, then go to your "MasterViewController.m" file and change the string "Master" as you wanted. See the below image it would be like this in your MasterViewController.m. enter image description here

UPDATE: and also change the barButtonItem name in the DetailViewController.m as like below. This will do the trick. enter image description here
