After entering the APN you should be able to see that the problem of missing hotspot is fixed but if still the problem is not fixed let’s try other options.

If the previous option doesn’t work try these steps:-

  1. Go to the settings options scroll down n you will see general click and open general settings then again scroll down at the last you will see reset option there, click and open it. After opening you will see reset network setting and try to reset your network settings and enter your password there just make sure that you want to reset your network settings.

Now again go to the setting option scroll down go to the general scroll down at the last you will see reset option click there, after opening reset option on the 2nd number you will see Erase all content and settings it will ask you for your password enter the password and try this step, but if your device is jailbroken don’t go ahead, it will hit all content and settings because at the last you will just see the Apple logo and nothing will happen everything just remains the same and if you don’t want to reset your iPhone  by using reset option, just open iTunes and select your iPhone which is connected via USB on the right side you will see an option restore iPhone just click there and enter ok after that your iPhone would be set to the factory default and it will fix your problem.
