IOS – How to get names for devices connected to the hotspot


Once I turn on a hotspot in Settings > Personal Hotspot, on iOS, and a device connects, a blue banner at the top of the screen appears with the number of connected devices. I would like to see the hostname and any other associated information about the devices connected. Where could I find this information?

  • With a network scanner app like Net Analyzer running on your iPhone, you can see who’s connected.

    BlackMagic is my iPhone 7 - the host. The other two devices are Toshiba Flashair Cards connected to my personal hotspot.
