The users of iPad or iPhone experiencing issues of the personal hotspot are not alone as most people are facing the same problems. Moreover, Apple seems to quite aware of the issue, but the company is not saying anything that when the fix for the issue will come. Personal Hotspots become more useful when the users are finding any issue while using the Wi-Fi which is nearby to them. In such circumstances, when the users felt concerned while using a close-by Wi-Fi, then instead of moving to another network or fixing the issue of Wi-Fi, the phone users can opt to share the data connection of their phone with some other device like a laptop. The feature of the personal hotspot is not exclusive to the only iOS as the Android users also make the use of a similar ability. Still, more commonly, the feature is known as tethering.
But, the issues related to the personal hotspot are quite prevalent in the devices running iOS13, unlike Android devices. Apple is also aware of the problem which has been revealed in some documents as reported by MacRumors. According to the reports presented by MacRumors, it has been explained that Apple has sent an internal document to its authorized service centers regarding the personal Hotspot issue faced by the users. The company has also advised the service centers to help the users in every possible way if they are coming for getting the solution for the issue. However, the company has not mentioned any time limit to provide the fix regarding the problems of the personal hotspot.
Meanwhile, it has been observed that the issue of personal hotspot is arising in several ways, which is disturbing for the users. Some users are not able to connect their devices to the personal hotspot at all while some others are facing continuous drops in the connections, ultimately resulting in unreliable and inconsistent internet connection.
No Great timing for the arising of the issue amidst the ongoing health outbreak
The question of the personal hotspot has arrived in such a time when the whole world is facing the health outbreak, which could not be considered significant. Also, it is still not known whether how long the devices have been affected by the issue. It remains to see how long the problem will continue to affect the devices. This is the time when the governments are forcing people to maintain social distancing, and the companies are providing the employees the option to work from home. With more and more people are working from home and so the reliability on the uninterrupted internet connection is increasing every day. Also, the burden on broadband internet is massively rising under such circumstances. At the time, when the demand for uninterrupted mobile data connection is highly increasing, then the usefulness of the shared mobile data will deteriorate if the user could not find it reliable in such circumstances.
However, it is not clear that when the fix for the issue will come but it is expected that the company will provide the repair very soon. Amidst all, while going through the internal document sent to different authorized Apple service centers, the company has advised some temporary fixes for the issue, such as toggling the personal hotspot on and off, which might solve the problem.
