    The idea is actually a replication of one of the best features that Mac and iPhone users love - wherein the user doesn't need to pull out the phone and manually turn on tethering as users can turn it on from the device connected to the internet.

      But it's simple on the Mac as you simply need to click the Wi-Fi icon in the menu bar and select your iPhone. While on Android it appears to be like it can pop up a request if the user isn't online.
