    Since I’ve updated both of my phones to the final release of iOS 11 personal hotspot fails to connect. It was working on previous betas on my personal phone. My work phone was on iOS 10 still and was working but since updating to 11 neither will connect to one another. Anyone else having problems?

    Have you reset network settings on the phone and set it back up ?

    Same type of issue here.

    iPad Pro and iPhone 7. Used to hotspot from my phone to iPad regurlay with iOS10. Now, both are at 11 and nada. In fact, the “personal hotspot” link above the list of available WiFi network doesn’t show the link icon (the one similar to the infinity symbol?). When I manually turn on the hotspot on my phone, the WiFi SSID of. Y phone doesn’t show up in the available WiFi network list.... and works fine and shows up on my work phone that is still on iOS10.

    Not happy.

    Try changing the Wi-Fi Password to something longer. I had similar problem on IOS 10 and it was because I was using too short of a password.
