    The instant hotspot between my iPad Air and my iPhone 6 used to work flawlessly.

    I changed the name of the iPhone and now it does not work any longer.

    When I look for the wifi network, I find the iPhone with the old name but the information on the battery level is correct. If I try to connect, the connection is refused.

    My rMBP on the contrary finds the iPhone with its correct name and does connect.

    Any idea to make iPad find the iPhone with its correct name and to connect?

    Thanks for helping, Daniele

    apple says you should just try to log out and log back in on iCloud and turn off continuity and then turn it back on. on all your devices, reboot them

    and make sure that tethering is enabled

    makes sure wifi and bluetooth is both on
    and it should just work

    i still have issues with it. sometimes tethering to my iPad / iPhone will work and sometimes it won't

    maybe backup to itunes???
    maybe since you changed the name , it no longer knows your unlock code
    does it work when you have it unlocked?
