How To: iPhone Enable Hotspot and Connect to Wi-Fi Same Time

How To: iPhone Enable Hotspot and Connect to Wi-Fi Same Time

Some believe you can enable Hotspot and connect to a Wireless Network at the same time with an iPhone. In theory, this might allow you to wirelessly connect a device to your iPhone Hotspot and utilize the Internet off the iPhone Wireless Network it is connected to. In this way, the iPhone isn’t using its data connection to serve hotspot Internet – rather the Internet is coming from the wireless network it is connected to.

This will not work. The iPhone personal hotspot only allows you to share your iPhone cellular internet connection. It is not possible to have 2 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections.
