Demonstration was done with an iPhone 5 with Verizon LTE, and a laptop with Windows 8 and Internet Connection Sharing temporarily enabled (turn off sharing when done).

  1. Specs: iPhone 6 with iOS 9.2Home built PC (no wifi capability)Windows 10 ProiTunes is installed
    I cannot seem to fine the Apple Mobile Device under my Computer Management program. It says LogMeIn Hamachi VEA, Qualcomm Atheros Gigabit Ethernet Controller, and a lot of Wan mini ports (IKEv2, IP, IPv6, L2TP, Network Monitor, PPPOE, PPTP, and SSTP), however no Apple Mobile Device thing. I can't connect to the Internet on my computer since my Cat6 Ethernet cord is too short. Is there a solution to this issue?

  2. i am using yuphoria with vodafone LTE and trying to connect on my PC which has Windows 10 OS but even after i tether us connection my computer is not connected to the internet

  3. I have a question so for example if I bring my laptop to Starbucks I just turn on the hotspot and a put the code in the computer that's it. Please respond back

  4. Thanks for the video but the USB side just does NOT work. Windows does not allow the phone to be discover-able as a Network adapter. It just says "other devices" with a yellow triangle and iPhone.

  5. Now what did you think you really showed us??? NOTHING!! Sure u can turn on the hotspot because the phone pretty much tells you how to do it by its self. Your know what you didn't solve??? U where on wifi and when u turned on the hotspot it straight to LTE and was burning your data up!! Now who wants to use all their phone data up on a laptop???

  6. Techwizzard  not bill money and no charge dont worry  i been 2 week ago  working   
    well  wifi plus bluetooth on   go to  personal hotspot working  same time  u try  it  let me know

  7. For my shared data plan, no extra cost for this, just uses the shared data of the plan.
    The hotspot capability was built into iPhone 5 the day I got it, back in October 2012, just needed to be turned on in the phone.
