I'm trying to use my iPhone 5s internet connection from my PC (Windows 7) using USB cable. This all used to work but then I updated my iOS version to 8.4.1 (latest) recently and this now appears to not work any more.
When plugging in the phone the Apple driver appears to get successfully installed and I get a network connection icon. However, it has a (!) sign that it cannot access the internet.
Things I have tried and havent fixed the problem: - downloaded latest iTunes, uninstalled all of iTunes from my PC and installed the new version - tried using the iPhone as a hotsport via wifi from my iPad and this works (i.e. the internet connection from iPhone over wifi works). - disabling my PCs firewall
I find this very suspicious that the quite recent upgrade I did to the new version of iOS on the phone seems to coincide with USB tethering not working anymore (but this could be a coincidence I guess).
Any ideas would be great.
