When traveling around the world, to places with no Wi-Fi in sight and you need to access the internet, to check your email or watch videos online on your tablet or laptop, then the only solution is to set up your iPhone as a Wi-Fi mobile hotspot. In this article we’ll tell you what steps you need to take to do that, but don’t worry, everything’s simple and you won’t encounter any problems.
First of all, make sure that you have a generous data plan on your iPhone, because depending on what you’re doing on the internet, it will be wasted pretty fast and if you exceed your monthly quota, the cell phone bill will be enormous. Avoid this disaster and use mobile data with caution, don’t start downloading movies or large videos and stick to checking your emails or notifications on Facebook.
In order to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot on an iPhone (4s, 5, 5s, 6, 6s Plus, 7 or 7 Plus) or iPod touch 5th generation, you will need to follow these steps:
– Head to Settings, where you will select Cellular
– Tap on “Cellular Data Options” -> “Cellular Data Network”
– Now scroll down to the Personal Hotspot area
– Enter your Username (an APN and password can be added later on), and return to the Settings menu, where you will see a “Personal Hotspot” tab.
– Select the “Personal Hotspot” tab and you will switch mobile hotspot on and off. Also, you will change the password.
– After switching the toggle and creating the mobile hotspot, you will connect your laptop to the newly created network.
The password can be changed by simply tapping on the Wi-Fi password field. If you want to test out the Wi-Fi hotspot, make sure that your device supports WiFi – it can be a Windows laptop, an Android phone or tablet, an iPad or any other iOS gadget.
