Apple iPhone's personal Wifi Hotspot keeps on disconnecting

I am using iOS 15.5 currently in my Apple iPhone 12 Pro and I use it's Personal Wifi Hotspot frequently. While the hotspot functions flawlessly and never causes an issue, at times, when the internet is not actively used by the devices connected to the hotspot, iPhone stops the hotspot. It gets annoying you have to work discreetely as you would need to keep on enabling the hotspot over and over, and connect the device with the connection over and over as well. It just wastes a lot of time and definitely Apple must work on the issue. 

Currently the iPhone waits for 90 seconds for any data usage which is pretty small duration. Ideally it should at least 5 minutes, better yet it should be customizable but Apple never leaves anything for users to customize. 

Traits of successful humans

There are certain traits that you must imbibe in order to become the best version of yourself. I have collated few after watching countless videos, reading blogs/ books. 

1. Throw heart and head into things that you do. It should become a joy, a calling and passion. Seeing things as that will enjoy that you are immersed and will become successful. Also help others rise. Pepsi CEO

2. Learn how to connect dots - how to map the route to where you want to be and start taking baby steps towards it. 


Email marketing is cheap and works well but is risky

Emails are riskier than social - social posts can be deleted, edited but emails once gone can’t be revoked and if god forbid if those were sent to thousands - it will just get crazier

Understanding deep and tech


Trying to understand the technology in depth doesn’t matter if it takes days or weeks or even months

Believe in something greatly and then work 15 hours a day 0 figuring out the things you absolutely are passionate about. just do it and keep on doing it. 


When you take a backup, make your priority to download the backup file

At times we decide to stop using a web service, therefore, we export the personal data out of the service. If you are on the same path, when you are submitting the request for backup, for the coming hours, make it your ultimate priority to download the backup file from the service providers' portal - maybe twice if it is really important so that the data isn't lost. Most service provider keeps the backup file for a week or less so it is critical for the user to download the backup data before that.

A year back, I decided to move on from Notion and I submitted the request for a backup file. Somehow I forgot to download the backup file and few months only I realized that I had to download that. The data was gone forever.
