iphone wireless hotspot not working with Xbox one

As it says xbox one will not establish a link with either iphone 5 ios 6.1 or iphone 4 ios 7

The xbox sees the hot spot but will not connect, its not carrier related but seems the xbox either doesn't like the iphones SSID or the encryption.

I have found a work around which is the follong and can only be done via a jailbroken phone.

Download My Wii in cydia, use this app to change your hotspot name and change the encryption type or turn it off.

Once done the xboxone will connect normally.

For support records.

What Country/State/Province do you live in?  UK

I hear you buddy. I use my iPhone hotspot a lot with my Xbox360 and work very good. Sometimes the connection is better than home. I got an Xbox One today and couldn't connect with my iPhone hotspot. Don't know what the problem is. I couldn't find answers either. I don't understand either why Xbox answered you with a link that doesn't even answer a bit of our problem.

I found a way around though. They explain how to connect through your pc or mac and that's what I did. I connected my mac with my iPhone hotspot and now everything works fine. Though it is more work than before to connect.

There's in incompatibility issue with the xbox one and the iphone, you wont get it to connect without using an app only available on a jailbroken phone so you can change the devices ID and security type.
