Step 1: Turn on Personal Hotspot.
Open your Settings app, tap Personal Hotspot, and enable it by tapping On. You can also choose whether you want Personal Hotspot turned on automatically when you’re out of cellular range (which is a good idea for battery life). If you don’t see Personal Hotspot in your Settings menu, tap Cellular Data, then Personal Hotspot. If that doesn’t work, try restarting your phone.
Step 2: Enable Notifications
To do so, head over to Settings > Cellular and toggle on Cellular Data Network. This will allow your iPhone to access cellular data even when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi. While in Settings, also flip on Personal Hotspot, which allows your device to share its wireless internet connection with other devices.
Step 3: Start Using the Phone as a Wi-Fi Hot Spot
Once you’ve set up your phone as a personal Wi-Fi hot spot, you can use it to connect other devices (laptops, tablets) to your Internet connection. To do so, look under Personal Hotspot on your iPhone and select Wi-Fi + Cellular. Then turn on Personal Hotspot using Touch ID or Face ID.

Step 4: Connect to Your Hotspot
Tap on Tethering and Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot on your home screen. You should see a big blue button that says Personal Hotspot. Tap it once and wait for it to turn green. This means your hotspot is enabled and connected. (If you don’t see it, make sure Personal Hotspot is turned on in Settings > Cellular.)
Step 5: Stop Sharing Your Internet Connection
If you don’t have a wireless router, you can set up your iPhone as a hotspot. To do so, go to Settings > Cellular and turn off Personal Hotspot. If it’s already turned off, tap Personal Hotspot to toggle it back on.
Step 6: Turn Off Personal Hotspot
To save your hotspot data allowance, you can turn off Personal Hotspot when you’re not using it. Go to Settings > Personal Hotspot and toggle it off. Note that turning off Personal Hotspot doesn’t disconnect your devices; they stay connected but stop using mobile data. You can also disconnect devices individually by tapping them under Cellular Data in Settings > Personal Hotspot.
Step 7: Delete the App From Your Phone
Once you’ve finished playing with your new hotspot, you’ll need to delete it from your phone. This will prevent anyone else from accessing it. Simply head back into Settings > Personal Hotspot and toggle it off. Tap Delete when prompted and then choose Erase all Data so you can start with a clean slate next time. There you have it! You now know how to use a hotspot on your iPhone in seven simple steps.
