Have you ever needed internet access on your iPad or Macbook, but there was no WiFi available? If you're on the go or your Wi-Fi has gone down, a mobile hotspot can save the day. A mobile hotspot allows you to use your mobile phone to provide internet access to all your other devices!
A mobile hotspot uses your phone's data. When you turn your phone into a hotspot, other devices will use your phone's data to connect to the internet. The speed of your internet access depends on the strength of your phone's network connection, and the type of network it connects to - 3G, 4G, or 5G. A 5G network will provide the fastest connection, and a 3G network will provide the slowest.
To turn your iPhone into a mobile hotspot, perform the following:
Make sure to set a name and password for your mobile hotspot network. Now, on your device that requires internet access, your mobile hotspot will appear as a Wi-Fi network, with the name you provided. Select this network and enter the password for it. You are now connected!
