Check settings under Settings- Personal Hotspot. Be sure it’s enabled, and that Wifi is turned on.

Change the APN to telstra.iph

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Out of interest, I checked my iPhone X settings under:

  • Settings > Mobile Data  > Mobile Data Network

and my APN is set to telstra.internet

 

Is that the setting you are referring to Jupiter?.   (My hotspot works okay)

Yes. That's the one.

 

It appears that on some iPhones (mainly older ones from what I can see), that latest iOS update has caused a rollback in behaviour that means that they don't work properly on telstra.internet or telstra.wap. Telstra.iph was the APN that was used up until a few years ago as the main iPhone data connection (the way it works was tailored to the iPhone).
