Download Fix for Personal Hotspot Missing After iOS Update – Tethering is still not working? Another possible fix is to retype the access point name in through Internet Tethering (Personal Hotspot) settings. This can be accessed through Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data, look under ?Internet Tethering? for APN, and fill in an access point name. A username and password are not required. Note in iOS 6 and newer, ?Network? is now labeled as ?Cellular? in settings. Personal Hotspot Still Missing? Try This Another common issue with Personal Hotspot disappearing after an iPhone update is that it simply gets turned off on it?s own. This sometimes requires either to be re-activated or just set up again. Why that happens is not entirely clear, but it?s super easy to turn back on: • Open Settings, go to General, then go to Cellular (or Network). • Scroll all the way to to the bottom and look for ?Personal Hotspot?, it may appear as ?Set Up Personal Hotspot? if the setting was tossed out.
