Fix iPhone WiFi Hotspot Problem
All you need to do in order to create a Hotspot is toggle the enable Hotspot key and then activate Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as instructed. But sometimes this does not work and you cannot figure out why. So here is some knowledge you will find useful to deal with this issue.
- An iPhone WiFi Hotspot works only when the personal Hotspot page is opened. When the screen is closed it tries to connect to Wi-Fi. Hence, ensure that the screen is active when you want to activate the Hotspot connection and go to home screen only when it is already connected.
- Sometimes even if the Hotspot toggle is on the option to turn on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth does not appear so the Hotspot is blankly on with no other device to communicate with. Always remember to turn on the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth even if there was no automatic prompting.
