Tethering was possible in iOS 6 too and well before I came along, which was iOS 5. I have TetherMe installed right now and I'm running 9.0.2.It was possible on ios7, ios8 & most likely possible on ios9.
Edit: I have unlimited data with VZW
Pangu is the actual jailbreak. It has nothing to do with tethering. It's like saying the app that lets you root your Android allows free tethering.Good to know. Does Pangu allow tethering for free?
Natively no on stock iOS.Is there an extra charge for tethering natively?
Is there a stable jailbreak for iOS9 that allows tethering?
Is this true now for att customers to your knowledge? I know a while back they were switching some to the 5 gb plan that allows the personal hotspot after very little warning once you started tethering using some of the jailbroken methods. I've always just avoided tethering so that I don't lose unlimited dataNatively no on stock iOS.
On jb iOS you can tether as much as you want and Verizon cannot stop you per fcc guidelines.
Many tethering hacks available if you jb.
I see, makes sense. I've actually dabbled with cydia in the past on iPod touch and iPad. Is pangu successful on the iOS 9.02 and 9.1 (with the 3rd party tethering apps through cydia)?Pangu is the actual jailbreak. It has nothing to do with tethering. It's like saying the app that lets you root your Android allows free tethering.
Cydia is the store. Think of it like the Google Play store, but with stuff that lets you modify system files directly. TetherMe, or MyWi, or any of the other actual tethering tweaks would be the apps in the Play store that allow (or enable) tethering options that are otherwise hidden from you (they are actually there, you just cannot see them until one of these tweaks is applied).
So, you'd use the Personal Hotspot feature in the same place in the Settings app as any other person who normally has tethering.
Now, whether your carrier can catch you tethering is an entirely different matter.
I see. If I were to order an iPhone 6s today, do you know which iOS it would ship with?Pangu is a success even if you jailbreak and install nothing. Pangu is a success because the intent of a jailbreak is to allow the user to execute code in the kernal that they ordinarily cannot execute because of Apple's restrictions.
So, the very fact that a jailbreak (Pangu in this case) lets you do that means the JB was a success. And since it was designed for iOS 9.0 to 9.0.2 that is what it successfully works on. It does not work for 9.1 because Apple has patched the JB exploits that are present in 9.0, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2.
Once you are jailbroken, it's simply a matter of installing the tethering tweak of your choice from within Cydia.
How can I downgrade? Do I have to take it to the store and ask them? Is it easy?I have verizon UDP on iphone 6s jailbroken (which works great) installed tetheme from cydia and a can tether as much as i want. Even if you get 9.1 tou can downgrade to 9.0.2 as long as apple still signs it.
You download an IPSW and you tell iTunes to use that IPSW to restore your iPhone to.How can I downgrade? Do I have to take it to the store and ask them? Is it easy?
No, this FCC thing about limiting or disabling tethering apps is only for verizon subscribers.Is this true now for att customers to your knowledge? I know a while back they were switching some to the 5 gb plan that allows the personal hotspot after very little warning once you started tethering using some of the jailbroken methods.

Do you have any suggestions as to which app is better? Tether me is significantly cheaper than My Wi 9. Feel free to mention any other tethering apps that you like. Thanks.Both TetherMe and MyWi 9 are working! For MyWi, you'll need to toggle wifi on first. There's a small bug where MyWi doesn't turn it on. But it's working. And, yes, I'm on VZW w/unlimited data. if they're gonna start charging $20/month totally worth it.
