Tethering has always been an issue with carriers, as using an iPhone's network connection on a laptop eats up a lot of data. Although most of us are on the newer plans with data caps, some are still grandfathered in on the unlimited data plans from the past. Most carriers do not allow tethering without purchasing a specific plan on a carrier, but as with many issues, Jailbreak is here to solve another.
TetherMe for iOS8+ is one of the cheaper tethering Cydia tweaks out there, but it gets the job done. Upon installing TetherMe, the user can set a WiFi password within the Setting app and tether it to virtually any device, allowing devices such as an iPad to share the iPhone's data connection. Of course, the user can choose to enable or disable WiFi tethering within the TetherMe settings page.
Cydia Tweaks like MyWi currently support iOS 8, however MyWi is currently $19.99 and doesn't app too many different features. TetherMe for iOS8+ lets the user tether via WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB connection and is now available in the Cydia Store for only $4.99.
