    Hey so I have a iPhone 6s and I’m trying to use personal HotSpot with my iPad but it isn’t working since I updated my iPhone 6s to iOS 11. Anyone know why this could be?

    You could try resetting your network settings. That could resolve the issue as well.

    Toggle personal hotspot on and then on

    If it's not working, try resetting your settings. If it's still not working you might want to contact your cell carrier.

    How are you trying to connect to it with the iPad? Is the iPad on the same iTunes account? When you search for wifi on your iPad does the name of your phone show up? It should be able to join the iPhone without turning hotspot in in your settings.

    Yes the iPad is on the same iTunes account and when I do search for WiFi it does show my iPhone on the list.

    The weird thing is it works when I plug it into my MacBook Pro because of the USB connection so I don’t know why it wouldn’t work via WiFi.

    Unfortunately this only made it worse for me as it doesn’t even show my iPhone as a list for WiFi options anymore

    Could potentially be a carrier issue at this point. You may try verifying you still have the service on your account for mobile hotspot.

    I thought Apple made it easier to connect so users wouldn't have to do all that settings stuff. I'm not in the US but I've never had any hotspot or tethering on my phone account but I've connected to my phone lots of times and it works. When you do it is your phone unlocked because I've noticed it will not connect unless the iPhone is unlocked. Also try this turn off wifi on your iPad and reboot it. On the iPhone turn it off and remove the SIM and then reseat it and power up. Once the phone is powered up turn on wifi on the iPad. Check to see if you see the hotspot from your iPhone and try to connect.
