What is a Hotspot
In straightforward terms, the term ‘hotspot’ itself refers to a physical location with an extensive range of signals enabled for internet access using Wi-Fi; this can allow other devices connected to it also to access the internet and therefore be used for browsing the web or doing any other sort of work.
Several public places also use this technique to allow free Wi-Fi access for people. However, most of them might be too slow for a person to use fluently unless the place is relatively fine.
This is also the reason for this article being about how to turn on hotspots on iPhone 11. You can make your iPhone a hotspot for other devices to connect to and access the internet.
What is a Mobile Hotspot
A mobile hotspot is precisely what it says, a hotspot that is also mobile, a device with a signal range that can be carried anywhere and hence allow other devices to connect to it. The difference between regular and mobile hotspots is thin but visible.
Unlike a hotspot, a physical location with a signal range made specifically for internet access, they have the advantage of being present in various locations. However, the speed may depend entirely on the internet the Hotspot uses.
On the other hand, a mobile hotspot is technically a portable signal range that allows internet access in places you wouldn’t find otherwise in locations with no biological hotspot. A mobile hotspot allows you to connect any of your devices to the internet without connecting to a Wi-Fi router.
A mobile hotspot allows one to access Wi-Fi on devices that otherwise are unable to access.
This still faces the same issue as the physical Hotspot: the Wi-Fi’s speed will be dramatically reduced when used on another device, such as using an iPhone’s Wi-Fi personal hotspot to connect to your Mac laptop.
Knowing how to turn on Hotspot on iPhone 11 can be very helpful when you are stuck in a dire situation without your trusty router Wi-Fi; make sure that your mobile data is preserved and fast enough to run on your computer.
