Vex and ipad

I am using an ipad to attempt to control the vex iq robot. I have done all of the updates, my ipad recognizes the brain in Modkit. I have put in a program previously and it has both run from the ipad and was able to be downloaded to the brain and run from the brain itself. Now, however I am unable to do either. Modkit still is connected to the brain but the programs don’t run from the ipad and the brain says there is an error when I try to download. Help please!

This is a fairly common problem in my experience. When I hit it, I try the following in this order:

  1. Reboot the brain
  2. Force-quit and relaunch the Modkit app (double-click the home button, then swipe up on the app, then relaunch). Be sure to save your code before doing this, as Modkit projects are not automatically saved!.
  3. Remove the brain from the list of paired brains and re-pair it.

One of these things seems to solve the issue most of the time.
