I can't get my iPhone X Verizon personal hotspot to connect either.

The Maestro sees the iPhone X in the "Chose a Wifi Network" list, but when I type in the password, it won't connect and returns to the password prompt.

A search on the web indicates that Apple uses WPA2 for the hotspot connection.

Check the name on your iPhone. If it is MIKE’s iPhone it won’t work. Change name to MIKES iPhone and it should read your password. I had that issue and as soon as I took of the ‘. Everything worked fine. Rick, k2RB

OK, that solved the connection issues and after a re-boot of the Maestro and my iPhone X, everything works swimmingly!

Thanks for the tip.  Too bad it isn't listed in the documentation!
