My GoPro 8 will not connect to my iPhone 11 Pro Max.

I have tried every help topic on GoPro and iPhone support. I cannot get my GoPro 8 black to connect to my hotspot so I can livestream. This is what I bought this camera for, and I need support in how to make this work.

Hi @heroichike64841

 

What error message are you getting?

Is the app not picking up the Hotspot connection?

Can you help us with the following information: Camera version, GoPro App version, phone OS version.

 

 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: My GoPro 8 will not connect to my iPhone 11 Pro Max.

UPDATE- I found a solution for my setup...I could not make this work no matter what I tried between GoPro and iPhone support. So I went to Reddit and luckily found a post, where someone suggests using a second phone as the hot spot. Luckily I am able to do this, and it has worked great. Not helpful if you don’t have access to someone else’s hot spot. But it’s really frustrating that so many people try to blame the user for this issue when it’s clear there is a serious issue with iPhones and live-streaming when there is no WiFi access.
