I have an iPhone 6 and the 2013 rMBP. Both support 802.11ac WiFi, yet the iPhone always sets up the hotspot as 802.11g for backwards compatibility (I think). Is there a way to change this? My unlimited LTE is capable of reaching 60Mbps and WiFi is becoming the bottleneck.

I was hoping perhaps Yosemite's instant hotspot would be able to tell the iPhone what kind of a network to set up?

  • Sidenote : use USB tethering to avoid that bottleneck until you find a better solution. – user56648 Oct 16 '14 at 13:30
  • My Mac is currently connected to my iPhone using personal hotspot using 802.11n (2.4 GHz) PHY mode. (of course, it's been almost 3 years since this question was posted so maybe they've updated something in between) – Can Poyrazoğlu Jul 26 '17 at 6:52
