Here’s a new app called TetherNoJailbreak that lets you bypass these limitations without jailbreak.

TetherNoJailbreak app bypasses the stock tethering limitations of your iPhone for free. It is developed by Frank Zhang. Essentially, this app disguises the tethering data as regular data. Once you install it, you will not experience the following –

  • Paying extra money to remove hotspot limitations

  • Blocked hotspot functionality on your iPhone
