Now, the idea of using the “tether” function as added towards the middle of 2009 (though not supported well by networks – due to data volumes?) was touted for use with the non-3G enabled iPad (unless you pay your $140 odd for mobile access) where Bluetooth- or USB-based links to a network are suppored. And, of course, for the hoards of people that followed the Apple storm, the iPhone is the logical next step there, in a world of integration and seamless interconnectivity.
But will the iPad support the tethering to the iPhone? Steve Jobs replied quite quickly and succinctly:

Short, sweet, and at least using his own devices.
Users will still find a way to link up via MiFi or WiFi — without the official support from Apple – until they reflash the firmware and it becomes a battle of loopholes…
But you knew that already.
