If you want to connect another device to your iPhone 6s Plus over Wi-Fi, you can turn on the Personal Hotspot feature. This turns your iPhone into a makeshift Wi-Fi router that other devices can use to access the internet.
If your iPhone personal hotspot isn’t working, there may be a software issue that needs to be fixed. This could be a simple fix like updating the iOS software or resetting your iPhone’s network settings.
How to turn it on
When you have a weak Wi-Fi signal, your iPhone 6 can step in to help out. This function is called personal hotspot and turns your phone into a makeshift internet router. It also allows other devices to connect to your phone’s cellular data connection and use it as their own wireless network.
This feature is a great way to get around Wi-Fi restrictions or share your data plan with other devices when you don’t have access to a Wi-Fi network. It’s especially handy for using data-heavy apps or video streaming services like Netflix and YouTube.
You can turn it on and share your data with other devices by opening the Settings app, tapping Cellular, and then selecting Personal Hotspot. You can also open the Control Center, tap and hold on the Connectivity square, and then select Personal Hotspot from there.
A number of issues can prevent your personal hotspot from working properly, including a faulty SIM card or a glitch in your cellular data plan. Sometimes turning your cellular data off and back on can solve this problem.
How to turn it off
A personal hotspot on your iPhone 6 allows you to use your cellular data to create a wireless network that other devices can connect to. However, it can also cause problems if you don’t have enough cellular data or if you’re on a limited plan.
The first thing you should try to do is to turn the hotspot off on your device. You can do this by opening the Settings app, tapping Cellular, then Personal Hotspot. Next, tap the switch that says Allow Others to Join.
If the hotspot is turned off on your phone, other devices won’t be able to connect to it anymore. This is especially true if you’re using Family Sharing on your phone.
Another possible reason why your Personal Hotspot doesn’t work is that you have an out-of-date version of iOS installed on your phone. To get the latest update, open your Settings and tap General -> Software Update.
Alternatively, you can factory reset your iPhone. This is a last-ditch solution that should be used only if all other solutions fail to fix the problem.
This will clear out all your background apps and refresh the memory of your device, which should resolve the issue. But be sure to make a backup before doing so.
How to share it with other devices
The Personal Hotspot feature on iPhone 6s Plus allows other devices to connect to the Internet using your iPhone’s cellular data connection. This works even when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi, so it’s a great way to stay online on the go.
Before you share your hotspot, make sure that all of your devices are signed into the same iCloud account and that you’ve turned on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. You can do this on both iOS and Mac devices running at least iOS 8.1 or later.
On an iPhone, tap Settings > Cellular -> Personal Hotspot to turn the feature on or off. If it’s on, you can see the Personal Hotspot icon in the status bar of your device.
If it’s off, your iPhone doesn’t have a cellular data connection or there’s something wrong with your SIM card. You should contact your cellular provider to find out what’s wrong.
Your iPhone can also connect to the internet using a USB cable, which is faster than other methods of connecting to your hotspot. To use the USB method, you’ll need to have your iPhone and the computer both connected to your Wi-Fi network and configured with the correct password.
To use this method, connect your iPhone to your computer with the USB cable that came with the device. You’ll see an alert that says “Trust this Computer?” Tap Trust to complete the connection.
Once you’ve successfully connected to your Personal Hotspot using a USB cable, you can now share it with other devices. However, you’ll need to enter a password each time you want to connect another device to your personal hotspot.
How to change the password
If you have a personal hotspot on your iPhone, you might want to change its password to make it easier for you to use. In addition to preventing others from connecting to it, changing your iPhone’s password is also a good way to protect your data.
Whether you’re using a personal hotspot on your iPhone or a regular Wi-Fi network, changing the password is a quick and easy way to secure your device. Plus, it’s a great way to prevent anyone from using your data, which can result in overage charges from your carrier.
First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. This is the gear-shaped icon on the home screen. Then tap Cellular, which is a green icon.
Next, choose Set Up Personal Hotspot.
You’ll see a screen that asks you to set a password (minimum 8 characters). Once you’ve entered a password, you can change it or disable the feature altogether.
