How to turn on WiFi hotspot internet sharing for iPhone
Have you ever been stuck in a situation where you need to get a device online but there is no nearby Wi-Fi or any other kind of internet access. But, as long as you've got an iPhone with a 3G or 4G data connection with you, your problem can be easily solved using Personal Hotspot.
Free iPhone Wifi HotspotWith iOS 6, the users can now set up a personal hotspot instantly. Charges will be applied. Wifi hotspot can be made in two simple steps:
1. Open Settings
2. Open Personal Hotspot in Settings.
Step - 1
Step - 2
After opening settings, you will see an on/off switch for the hotspot if you’ve already set up the Personal Hotspot.
If you have not set up the Personal Hotspot, the iPhone will show you exactly how to do it in clear, easy steps.
Personal Hotspot is a feature of iOS that lets iPhones running iOS 4.3 and higher share their wireless data connection with other nearby devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB. In this scenario, the iPhone acts like a wireless router for the other devices, transmitting and receiving data for them. An iPhone 4 or newer is required for Wi-Fi connections, though an iPhone 3GS can offer Bluetooth and USB connections.
Using a Personal Hotspot is pretty easy once you've got it set up. It requires an iPhone with an active data plan, as well as the tethering option added to that plan (this can be added to your plan via your online account with your phone company; it usually adds at least $20/month to your bill).
To begin setting up your Personal Hotspot, tap on the Settings icon on your homescreen (unless you've moved it elsewhere; if so, locate it there and tap on it). In iOS 6 or lower, tap on General, then tap Network.
In iOS 7 or higher, the process is a bit simpler. After tapping Settings, simply tap Personal Hotspot.
