If your WIFI id and passwords are correct.
Then I will ask if you have use that iphone hotspot with other types of devices or other phones or other computers successfully before , besides the ESP8266?
iphone hotspot behaves very differently than Android phones.
It will only advertise/broadcast o announce it's SSID for a while after you turn the hotspot on in settings, or you change the password, or you go to the settings to view your password.
Then it will stop broadcasting its SSID to save power.
So, I hate using iphone as hotspot for this reason
It's so hard to get connected for the very first time.
You need to keep fiddling with these settings to wake up the hot spot then within around 1 minute try to connect, and if it's not successful, repeat the whole thing.
