How to set up a Wi-Fi hotspot on an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad

Creating a Wi-Fi Hotspot is as great way Jamaicans can share that 3G Data Plan that they purchased from FLOW Jamaica as noted in my Geezam blog article entitled “FLOW Lyf Data Plans wins over Whatsapp, Deezer and FLOW Sports Fans”.

It’s incredibly easy to set up a Wi-Fi hotspot for an android smartphone such as the Alcatel Pixi 4 as described in my blog article entitled “How to set up a Wi-Fi hotspot on an Android Alcatel Pixi 4 smartphone”.

But how do you create a Wi-Fi Hotspot for a Apple iPhone and other Apple Products?

How to Create a Wi-Fi hotspot for your Apple iPhone – Any Apple Product can share Internet

Creating a Wi-Fi Hotspot for an Apple iPhone is very easy. In fact, once you master it on the Apple iPhone, it'll work on any Apple Device, namely:

1.      iPhone 4s
2.      iPhone 5
3.      iPhone 5s
4.      iPhone 6
5.      iPhone 6 Plus
6.      iPhone 6s
7.      iPhone 6s Plus
8.      iPhone 7
9.      iPhone 7 Plus
10.  iPad Pro
11.  iPad 2
12.  iPod touch 5th generation

First go to Settings

Enter Internet Information under the heading Personal hotspot, specifically:

1.      APN: ppinternet
2.      Username: [enter your chosen username here]
3.      Password: [enter your chosen password here]

Exit back to Settings. Then select Mobile/Cellular Data.

At this point all your friends should be able to see your Wi-Fi Hotspot!!! You have to be careful though.....this is really to be used if you have unlimited Data, as sharing your data Plan via Wi-Fi will easily burn through your data plan.

Still, sharing is caring so share this with as many of your friends as you like!!!
