If you use an iPhone X and are usually on the go and out of the house all the time, you may need to use the mobile hotspot a lot of the time when you are away from the internet connection at home but need to access the internet on a device which has no mobile data available.
Fortunately, the iPhone X comes with a mobile hotspot feature just like other modern smartphones. Setting up the mobile hotspot on the iPhone X is very easy.
One of the main benefits of the mobile hotspot on the iPhone X is that the battery life is longer than most smartphones and as such, it is an able device to use when activating this feature. In the guide below, we will show you how to activate the WiFi Hotspot on the iPhone X. We will also show you how to set a password for the mobile hotspot to prevent unauthorized access.
How to Use Your iPhone X as A WiFi Hotspot

You should also keep in mind that some data plans do not provide mobile hotspot as an option and as such, you should make sure to confirm with your carrier before you proceed. Once you have set this up, you can now connect multiple devices to the mobile hotspot of your iPhone X.
