This question already has an answer here:

Is it possible from the command line to identify whether the current Wi-Fi connection, or a detected SSID, is an iOS personal/instant hotspot?

I know OS X can detect this, as it shows a specific "hotspot" icon in the topbar when scanning the list of SSIDs or when being connected to an iPhone (see screenshot)

I tried using /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport -I and ifconfig but I'm not able to find information that helps me identify an iOS hotspot. enter image description here
