I have been playing Mincraft with my son for last 10 months. We are both using iPad Pro's. And until recently we have had no problem connecting to each other worlds. Then about two months ago, suddenly we are no long able to connect to each other. We can still see each other. We can still start the join process on each others worlds. But every single time, we get the "Unable to connect to world" error.
I have tried everything. I have rebooted the device. Swiped all of the apps out of memory. Signed out and back in again. Tried a third device. I checked the local network switch in settings. We are both on the same wifi network. I check the account settings at xbox live. I even deleted the game and reinstalled it. This is on a local network without any firewall or unusual router settings.
Help! Being stuck at home so much, we are really missing our favorite bonding experience.
