A personal hotspot allows for the Apple iPhone 5s to share its mobile network connection, via a WiFi network it generates, to other devices around.


Apple iPhone 5s hotspot not working

A personal hotspot allows for the Apple iPhone 5s to share its mobile network connection, via a  WiFi network   it generates, to other devices around.

When it is not working, the issue can be with the Apple iPhone 5s network connection, or with the device that tries to connect on this hotspot.

Reset network settings

The first solution to try, is to reset the network settings on the Apple iPhone 5s.

In the menu Settings > General > Reset, select Reset network settings.

This will get rid of all existing network connections, which will have to be entered again after the phone restart.

When the phone is back on, connect again to the data mobile network.

How to turn on hotspot on Apple iPhone 5s

Now, the hotspot has to be enabled again.

In Settings > Cellular > Personal hotspot, setup the hotspot and change the password, put something that you are certain to be able to type on the other devices that will connect to this network. Make sure to use only special characters that you will be able to type on the other device.

Now, turn the personal hotspot on, and connect to it from any other device that should connect to internet through the wireless network generated by the Apple iPhone 5s, using the new password that has just been setup.

USB connection

If that did not work, before bringing the phone to an Apple specialist for a hardware check, try to plug the phone with a USB cable to a computer.

Now that the Apple iPhone 5s is plugged via cable, try turning on the hotspot, and see if the computer has access to Internet.
