Once you’ve set up your cellular data plan with your carrier, follow the instructions in the Settings app to turn on mobile data and establish a connection. You’ll be able to use mobile data for web browsing, streaming music and videos, making FaceTime calls, and more. Keep in mind that if you don’t have an unlimited mobile data plan, using mobile data for large downloads or streaming may result in additional charges from your carrier.

Troubleshooting Mobile Data Issues on iPad

It’s possible that your Mobile Data is not working on your iPad because the Mobile Data feature is turned off. To fix this, go to Settings > Mobile Data and check if your mobile line is turned on. If it is off, turn it back on and check if you have service.
If you can’t see your mobile line in Settings > Mobile Data, it may be because you need to set up an eSIM or insert a physical SIM card. If you have done both of these steps already, you may need to contact your mobile service provider for further assistance.

Troubleshooting iPad Connectivity Issues With Cellular Data

There are several possible reasons why your iPad is not connecting to cellular data. It could be that your cellular line is turned off, or it could be that you don’t have service in the area. It could also be that you don’t have an active SIM card or eSIM in your device, or that there are network issues in your area. If none of these seem to be the case, it may be a good idea to contact your carrier and ask them to check if there are any service outages or other issues that may be causing the problem.

Using an iPad with a Phone Hotspot

Yes, you can use your phone as a hotspot for your iPad. All you need to do is enable the hotspot feature on your phone and then connect your iPad to the Wi-Fi network created by your phone. Depending on your device, you may need to enter a password or use an authentication process known as WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). Once connected, you can use your phone’s data connection to access the internet on your iPad.

Why Is It Not Possible to Create a Hotspot from an iPhone to an iPad?

It is possible to hotspot your iPhone to your iPad, but there are a few things you need to make sure of first. First, you need to check with your mobile carrier to make sure that Personal Hotspot has been enabled, and that your mobile plan supports it. If it has been enabled, then restart both the iPhone and the iPad that you’re trying to connect. Make sure both devices also have the latest version of iOS or iPadOS installed. If you still can’t hotspot your iPhone to your iPad after doing these steps, contact customer support for help.


The iPhone is one of the most popular and powerful smartphones on the market, offering an intuitive user experience, an impressive array of features, and great performance. With its ability to tether and share data plans with other mobile devices via a Personal Hotspot, the iPhone is an ideal choice for those who need to stay connected on the go. Whether you’re a business executive or just someone who needs to stay connected when away from Wi-Fi, the iPhone has you covered.
