How to Use an iPhone as a WiFi Hub for an iPad


If you have an iPhone running iOS 4 or later, you can share your cellular Internet connection with other devices, such as an iPad. Essentially, your iPhone converts its cellular Internet connection into a Wi-Fi signal for your iPad to pick up. You must first activate this feature on your cellular account; then you can turn on the feature in your iPhone's settings. Once the feature is on, you can connect your iPad to the signal.

  • Call your cellular carrier or go to your account online to activate the hotspot feature. This may incur additional charges.

  • Tap "Settings" on your iPhone's home screen, then tap "General" and then tap "Network." Tap "Personal Hotspot."

  • Slide the toggle switch to "On." Choose to turn on Bluetooth or use only Wi-Fi and USB in the dialog box that appears. Tap the password bar to reset the password if you want to change it.

  • Tap "Settings" on your iPad's home screen. Tap "Wi-Fi." Tap the network with the name of your iPhone. Enter the password to connect. You will see "Personal Hotspot: 1 Connection" in blue at the top of your iPhone's screen.
