1. Change your device name.

Open Settings > General > About > Name and change the device name to "propeller". 

2. Change your Personal Hotspot password.

Open Settings > Personal Hotspot and change the Wi-Fi password to "propeller". 

3. Turn the hotspot on by clicking the button in the Personal Hotspot menu or using control center as shown below.

Once the hotspot is set up and the AeroPoints connect, you'll see a blue bar at the top of the device screen indicating the connection.

4. Press the button on the AeroPoints twice to enter "upload mode" indicated by a slow blink (connecting) followed by a fast blink (uploading).

You're all set! It takes approximately one minute to upload each hour of recorded AeroPoint data (but can take longer if you have a slow connection). 


iOS devices allow only five concurrent connections to your Personal Hotspot so we recommend uploading five AeroPoints at a time.

Keep your iOS device open on the Personal Hotspot screen to maintain connection and monitor data upload.

You must have mobile data enabled on your phone in order to provide internet through the hotspot.

I still can't do it!
