Personal Hotspot gives users a chance to share their iPhone's 3G connection as a Wi-Fi access point for other devices. Apple added support for the option in iOS 4.2.6.
Verizon charges $20 per month for Wi-Fi tethering, and AT&T will likely offer a similar deal.
The move is reminiscent of when Apple added MMS support and Bluetooth tethering to iOS 3.0, but AT&T restricted the features for months.
