Screenshot of the issue

The "Unpair" and "Pair" buttons are not available in the Xamarin.iOS Build Host app when the build host has no internet connection.

This is only a minor problem, but it means that if the user accidentally deletes the pairing data from the Windows side, doesn't have a backup copy of the PIN, and doesn't have an internet connection, then re-pairing via the GUI will not be possible.

## Steps to reproduce

1. Disconnect the Mac build host from the internet.

2. Quit and re-launch "Xamarin.iOS Build Host".

## Result

The Xamarin.iOS Build Host app shows "Refreshing Xamarin.iOS licenses", a spinner animation, and a greyed-out "Pair" button.

(Screenshot attached)

In this state, the build host can still be used to build and deploy iOS apps, so the only problem is if the user needs to re-pair.

this is no longer valid with XMA implementation. Closing.
