This looks like VS is disconnecting from the mac right after it connects, thus causing the designer to fail:

According to the logs, some issues were present due to missmatches between Windows and Mac iOS versions.
Also, many improvements has been made related to the connection mechanism, so given that I cannot reproduce this bug and that it has been reported some time ago, I mark this issue as Resolved.

Please feel free to re open it if you still get issues on the connection to the Mac.
