is there a way to stream content (music) to an Airport Express from an iPhone, but using that iPhone’s LTE data instead of the WiFi connection for internet?
Basically the LTE is a ton faster than our WiFi. I don’t need the Airport Express for anything but music streaming to a set of speakers. A natural way of doing that would be to open a personal hotspot on the iPhone, and connecting the AE to that - unfortunately the iPhone hotspot does not show up as a network in Airport Utility; it seems making a direct connection isn’t possible. Is there another option?
edit: think I figured it out. Disconnected the AE from LAN, but it’s still in “Create a wireless network” mode. When connecting to that WiFi from iPhone, it will show up with a “No Internet Connection” warning on iOS, and the iPhone falls back to cellular..
however, the connection keeps dropping out and reconnecting. Airplay keeps glitching out / there is intermittent silence a few times per minute. Seems like either the iPhone or the AE or both don’t like this connection. Quite annoying!
