I have booted my pi with Raspbain Stretch Lite and I have been able to establish an internet connection to my home network by configuring the wpa_suppicant file. However, I am not able to establish a connection when I change the configuration to that of my iPhone 7 hotspot.

I make changes to the wpa_suppicant.conf file and run...

wpa_cli -i wlan0 reconfigure

I am able to see the connection when I run:

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

but no connection is established. Below is my wpa_suppicant.conf file:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


Most of the answers have I have come across suggest that the issue when connecting to hotspots is that the ssid contains spaces and apostrophes but that is not the case here.
