USB Tethering

  • iOS 13+ USB tethering is not officially supported since it is impractical:
    • Need to tap "Trust" on every reconnection/hiccup up with usbmuxd unlike iTunes
    • If cellular signal is weak, tethering will automatically disconnect requiring USB physical reconnection to continue tethering.
    • Partial workarounds
