This is how I achieved it.

  • First don't forget to enable tethering in iPhone settings
  • Use blueman (sudo aptitude blueman), it is more userfriendly
  • In blueman settings make sure that in "Local services" PAN support switch in "NetworkManager"
  • In blueman plugins settings make sure that NMPanSupport is enabled (and MNIntegration is disabled)
  • Pair Blueman with iPhone as you would do with any other device
  • After iPhone is connected, right click on it in Blueman main screen and connect to "Network Access Point" service.
  • You're online, congratulations!
