We know that for the most part it is very easy to make a hotspot network on the iPhone or iPad, but lately, the technology has started to be used by all age groups, and seniors can say that they are new to various smartphone settings- s.

Before sharing a hotspot connection, you need to consider two aspects:

1. Devices connected to your iPhone will use mobile data traffic, which can increase billing costs.
2. As long as the hotspot is activated, the iPhone battery will consume much faster.

What is a hotspot?

O personal network hotspot will allow you to share (share) mobile internet connection of a iPhone or iPad (the condition is that it is with mobile data SIM) with other devices that support the connection to a Wi-Fi network. For example, if you have a laptop that you normally keep connected to the woreless router, but it doesn't work anymore, you canyou create a hotspot network on your iPhone to connect your laptop. It will use the iPhone's mobile internet.
You have to keep in mind that a laptop connected to a mobile data network will do more traffic than an iPhone or iPad. That is why you must pay attention to data consumption in order not to be charged extra.
