Please share your experiences, both positive and negative. Connecting my iPad Air to my iPhone 6 for Hotspot access has been hit-or-miss, at best. I am referring more specifically to the phone being in sleep mode with Hotspot turned on, and trying to link the Air to it without waking the phone. I'm 99% sure that is how it is designed to work, but no joy here. Ultimately, I end up having to wake the phone and be on the Hotspot screen for it to connect. iOS 8 running on both.
