I just got the 9.7 Pro and Instant Hotspot no longer works. Worked great on my iPad 4 before I sold it and is still great on my MacBook Pro. Is there a trick?

I have to cycle hot spot off and on on the iPhone off almost every time I want to use the hot spot. Annoying but works for me.

Hi,

you can also reset network setting by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

make sure BT is on on both devices too!
It seems to still happen when Bluetooth is on both regardless.

I haven't done that since my current iOS version has been 9.3.1, but I have these those settings on past versions and still have to cycle hot spot with the toggle after resetting network settings.


Thanks for the tips though
Brad
