    I have a very annoying issue when updating to a new iOS11 Beta, after each update the Instant Hotspot feature stops working and it can only be fixed by logging off from iCloud and logging in again. Sounds like a very simple fix but by doing that my 40GB iCloud Photo Library has to be re-sync, meaning being uploaded and download do my phone again. Not to mention downloading all my music again. Anyone also having this problem? The Personal Hotspot works fine after each update, the problem is the Instant Hotspot that is linked to the iCloud account. Tried many fixes before logging off from iCloud but no avail.
    Any suggestion is welcomed, already made a bug report to Apple.
    Regards.

    The carrier can block personal hotspot and charged aside if they want to. But that’s not the case here, good news is that Beta 7 aparently fixed it.... after the update Instant Hotspot still works.

    Tried resetting Network Settings? Go to Settings, General, Reset, then Reset Network Settings. This will NOT reset your device, but it will clear out all saved WiFi and other network settings. This MAY help.

    Yes, tried that already along with changing the phone’s name, switching data off, multiple resets, etc.... last night after Beta 6 installation I logged off and on to iCloud and it works again. Unfortunately one more time I’ll need to sync my 40GB photo library.
    Wonder if I’m the only one facing the issue with Instant Hotspot.

    Is there any dependency with the carrier? I thought, perhaps incorrectly, that the mobile provider has to "authorize" the hotspot feature each time its turned on.
