Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Note that I have a Forms application.
I'm seeing this error at random times. When it starts happening, it happens consistently unless I restart VS. The issue is that when the app is launched, debugger stops with a message in the console:
Launching 'AppXiOS' on 'xyz's iPhone'...
Launched 'AppXiOS' successfully on 'xyz's iPhone'...
The app has been terminated.
iOS device keeps running the app, but VS has no connection to it anymore. I also created this thread: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/183669#Comment_183669
Please provide the following information so we can diagnose the issue:
- Help | About Visual Studio (to know what versions you're using)
- Help | Xamarin | Zip Logs (right after the issue happens, while connected to the Mac)
- Full (Debug) Output Window contents right after the failure occurs
Please change the bug status to NEW again when the requested information is provided.
Thanks in advance!

Debug Output window
This is same as what is reported by the original issue.
I too have this issue and hence uploaded the data that you wanted.
I would like to mention my observations:
1. This issue occurs if,
a) Start the debugger in VS.
b) The app loads on to the iPhone.
c) I do play with the app and also observe values at few breakpoints.
d) Then I press the Home button.
e) Stop the debugger in VS.
f) Restart the debugger in VS.
g) The app is launched in iPhone and the DEBUGGER DETATCHES.
2. This doesn't happen if,
a) I remove the app from the 'running / sleeping apps list' (by double tapping the Home and sliding up the app) and then restart the debugger.
b) I stop the debugger in VS without tapping the Home button and then restart the debugger.
My phone is iPhone 6 running iOS 9.3.2 (13F69). After a long time this is the first time I debugged an app on the device after updating to Xamarin.Forms v188.8.131.52.
Assigning to @joj to investigate.
@shanti is your app crashing or is it just detaching the debugger, but running correctly?
App doesn't crash. Debugger just gets detached.

Trying a repro right now.
Fixed in master. Will be available soon.
Is this fix available with latest stable version of Xamarin.Forms v 184.108.40.206 ?
The fix does not live in Xamarin.Forms, and thus is not included in the latest stable release. However, it is in our Cycle 8 branch and targeted for that.
Thanks for the response. When can we expect that release ?
I can't provide a specific date, sorry. Currently we are looking at it being somewhere around a month away. This is subject to change pending many factors.
Although, we will be releasing Cycle 8 alpha, and later beta, builds which will have this fix.
I am also able to reproduce this Issue with stable builds(XVS 220.127.116.11 + XI 18.104.22.168) using comment#5. This is the debug output: https://gist.github.com/danish360/1c4368d4aae1a5231400cc832393bdc6
I have checked the same with latest Cycle8 (XVS 22.214.171.1246 + XI 126.96.36.199) and this is working fine now breakpoint hit everytime. This is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/ZpVDyhWOhj2f

Is there any light at the end of the tunnel? I need to debug on device.
It first happened on an iPhone 3 when using the HockeyApp SDK. After updating to XCode 8, it also happens on an iPhone 5c.
Restarting the iPhone worked for me
