Troubleshooting Personal Hotspot Not Working on iPhone SE

    • First, you have to make sure to erase or “forget” the saved WiFi connection that belongs to the iPhone that’s not currently working. Click below for a guide  on how to do that depending on your device if you’re unsure of the steps:
    • Once you’ve completed that, take the iPhone SE you’re trying to hotspot from and perform a Reset Network Settings
      (Note: This will erase saved WiFi passwords on your device, so remember to reconnect to WiFi after this step).
      • Go to Settings > General and then tap on Reset.  
      • Select Reset Network Settings.
    • Then go into Settings > Cellular > Personal Hotspot and change the WiFi password.
    • Turn Personal Hotspot ON.
    • Then connect to the “iPhone” internet connection that should be displayed now on the device you’re trying to connect from and enter the new password you configured.
  • If issue persists, try sharing your internet connection by plugging the iPhone directly into the computer you’re trying to connect to, then turning Personal Hotspot ON.

Is personal hotspot still not working on your iPhone SE?

To rule out other factors such as network problems and account-related issues that might have prevented personal hotspot from working on your iOS device, contact your network service provider. Let them know exactly of the issue you’re dealing with and see if the problem is on their end.
