iPhone Personal Hotspot, step 4

By default, Personal Hotspot is set to allow connections over USB only. When you turn the feature on, you'll see this pop-up asking if you'd like to turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to allow for wireless connections to your Personal Hotspot. If you do (and you probably will, in most cases), tap Turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

When other devices want to connect to your Personal Hotspot via Wi-Fi, they'll use their standard method of connecting to a new WiFi network.
