    Hi all,

    I have an iPhone 5 and a MBP. I recently swapped out the HD for an SSD and everything is fine. Except one thing.

    When I used to connect the iPhone to the MBP with USB cable the phone automatically registered it as a tethered connection and displayed the blue bar across the top of it's screen and the MBP would connect to the phone fine.

    Now however, I have to use the iPhone as a wireless connection. Question is what setting(s) do I need to change on what?

    Thanks in advance.

    In iOS 6, the phone should prompt you to choose USB, Wifi, BT or some combination. Are you choosing "USB Only" at that prompt on the iPhone?
