Connecting HP Printer to iPhone Hotspot

HP Recommended
HP Envy 4525
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have been desparately researching how to connect my HP printer to my iPhone hotspot so that it will update Instant Ink. The replies here seem to say this doesn't work, but I just figured it out, at least for my MacBook:


1. Turn on iPhone Hotspot

2. Connect MacBook to iPhone Hotspot

3. Start HP Utility software and select Network Settings (or may say Wifi/wireless settings)

4. The wizard will ask if you want it to configure the connection to the hotspot as the macbook is connected to. Say yes. This takes maybe a minute or so, then it connects.


After this, I was able to update Instant Ink!
