    My iPad tethers to my iPhone but lately it won't connect. Bluetooth is turned on on both devices. The iPhone shows as "discoverable" and the iPad shows that it's searching. Any ideas?

    Is Hotspot turned on under Settings?

    Have you tried tethering with WiFi instead of Bluetooth?

    I didn't know that was an option but will keep it in mind. Thank you.

    WiFi is the default tethering method and has much greater bandwidth and data transfer speed compared to Bluetooth.
