I have this strange issue where I want to play with my son and we can not connect the two together.
So my son with a newer iPad starts up Minecraft and launches into his world. Then I press play and wait for his world to show up.
This often works and often doesn't.
When it doesn't we both shut down Minecraft (double tap on the home button and swipe Minecraft up). Then when we start Minecraft up again, sometimes we are lucky and his world shows up. Sometimes it doesn't and we are not happy (like right now).
When I then attempt to use airdrop, I can actually see his iPad show up and send something, so I know the two devices can communicate over the wifi network.
How can I get this to work reliably?
