  • Hotspot is your own personal mobile internet to share with a laptop ipad or any other tablet that supports wifi
    You basically share your cellular data with other devices with personal hotspot on your iPhone but some networks charge an extra fee for hotspot
    But if you on the new share everything plan then it will just use your shared data
