Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set up a hotspot using the iPhone 6s Plus as well as Macbook Pro computer.
On your cell phone, tap on "Settings".
Then, choose "Cellular Data Network".
Next, scroll to the bottom to find "PERSONAL HOTSPOT".
Under "PERSONAL HOTSPOT" you will see a field "Username".
Tap it once. A keyboard will pop up.
Type in the "Username".
It can be any username you want. For this tutorial, I will write "mike". There is no need to enter any password here.
When you've finished, tap on "Cellular" to go back to "Cellular" options.
Then, tap on "Settings" to go back to "Settings".
You will see a new option, which is "Personal Hotspot".
Tap it once.
Turn the hotspot on by tapping the toggle next to "Personal Hotspot" until it turns green.
You can also change "WiFi Password".
Tap it once.
For this tutorial, I will set a simple password "mike2000".
Then, tap "Done".
The hotpot is enabled.
Now, let's go to the Mac computer and click WiFi symbol on the top of the screen.
You will see an option to connect with iPhone.
Click on it once.
A pop-up window will appear.
Type in the password that you have set for your hotspot.
In my case it has been "mike2000".
The iPhone will have a blue bar at the top indicating that there is one "Personal Hotspot" connection. The computer will show a little link over the WiFi symbol. Now, you can browse Internet as you would normally do using the data of the phone.
Open a browser on the Mac.
If I come back to the home screen, you will note that the blue bar will stay at the top.
If I ever want to access "Personal Hotspot" and make changes, tap on the blue bar.
