after restarting the iMac A+ Remote doesn’t find any iMac. I have to restart the iOS device (not only A+ Remote) to have the Mac listed in the connection list. Once the connection is established reconnection works mainly, but sometimes I have to go again in “Select a Mac” and select the Mac listed there. I already tried to reinstall A+ remote and deleted the pList file on the Mac, which made it happens more often, that the reconnection is being established.
Here is a compressed view of the issues I noticed.
- No Macs shown in the connection list after restart of iMac. iOS device needs to be restarted
- Once all devices have been restarted, and after iPad went to sleep reconnection sometimes works immediately and sometimes “Select a Mac” is necessary to establish connection (works seven out of ten times).
Especially the first one is really, really annoying, and I hope there will be a solution soon.
Thanks in advance,
Having the same issue here. Annoyed!!
I suppose it is an apple issue. iOS is getting worse with each version.
I never had problems, now with 11.4.1 I have the same issues.
A second IPAD with 11.4.0 connects flawlessly.
Other apps (rowmote, VnC apps) have same issues.
So we need an Android app, from my Android tablet I have no connection issues, besides there is no A+Remote.
So, I use VNC as remote.
Thanks for the info. Reading that I have been reset the network setting of the iPad. Now reconnection is faster and I haven’t seen that issue yet anymore.
It looks like it’s not working reliably with iOS 11.4. Just registered for Beta version of iOS 12 and I’ll get back as soon as I have testing results.
I just tested the reconnection issue with iOS 12, and everything works as expected now.
I have been experiencing this issue for a few months now, and the quickest fix for me that reliably works is NOT to restart iOS, but simply turn off WiFi in Settings, then turn it back on. A+ then immediately connects. Of course, why this began happening in the first place is frustrating, but this seems simpler than restarting your iOS device.
Hi, I allways had the same problems and this is an early signal; ios12 with MacOS Mojave installed, seems working as it was in IOS10 again. Only the Mac must be alive on a 3 hours energy time. As soon as the Mac isnt awake, you cant get it to work through IOS12.
That said, I have been pleased too soon before, lets wait a few weeks… maybe the old problems are luring once again
Another day Audirvana plus and A+ Remote just worked fine for me on MacOS MOJAVE and IOS12
I am even getting optimistic!
And my third day it works just fine! And the last two days I did not have to start my Mac as well…
The issue has disappeared for me, too, by just going to iOS 12. I have not upgraded my Mac to Mojave, so I suspect this was an iOS issue all along.
And still going strong, no problems!
