I should have added that this recent behavior after I cancelled a cellular service on an iPad. iPads see iphone’s Bluetooth ok - being connected via Bluetooth seems to help stay connected. In the 11.3 iPad I have selected “stay connected“ in the iphone’s hotspot information setting.

Hotspot disappeared again. Sometimes toggling the hotspot on iPhone and turning wifi on and off would seem to help connect. Other times it seemed impossible to connect. iPad on ios 10 not affected this time.


It seems the the answer could be to log in and out of iCloud on both devices, which i’ve done and it now seems to automaticlly connect immediately.


No doubt though, i’ll be posting back writing to myself again. Thanks Apple.
