1: Fill in and Equate APN
This is the way that I used and proved successful in returning the can’t connect to iphone hotspot. The trick is to fill in and match the contents of the APN settings in the Cellular Data APN column and the APN Personal Hotspot column.
Go to Settings> Cellular> Celular Data Options> Cellular Data Network
After that, just fill in and match the APN on Cellular Data and Personal Hotspot.
Now all that’s left is back, and Personal Hotspot will appear and be ready to use. If it doesn’t appear, restart the iPhone.
NB: For APN settings, each cellular operator is different. You can browse or just contact the mobile operator for more information about the mobile internet APN settings on the iPhone.

After reconfiguring APN also still not working? Maybe you can try to reset the iOS network. Yes, all network-related settings will be reset as before.
You do not need to worry about the data in the iPhone, because resetting the iPhone network settings will not erase all data on the iPhone such as photos, contacts, and so on.
