    Welcome to Android Central!

    You need to enable Personal Hotspot on the iPhone (Settings->Personal Hotspot), then try the connection again. If it doesn't work over Bluetooth, then you'll need to establish a WiFi connection from the tablet instead.

    That's how tethering works. The suggestion by @djrakowski is actually how most people tether, by allowing the "host" (the iPhone in this case) to broadcast a WiFi network that the "client" (in this case the Tab S3) connects to.

    Before I had the iPhone 7 I used a iPhone 5 to tether the galaxy tab s3 ,so if I was out somewhere and need the phones 3g signal for the rablet all i did was turn on personal hotspot on the phone and connect both through blu tooth .For some reason the iPhone 7 doesn't work doing it this although it shows it is connected and has a internet connection which baffles me

    Perhaps. I suspect that one or both devices are missing the Bluetooth profiles that enable internet sharing.

    WiFi is faster than Bluetooth anyway...
