Just wanted to pass along an observation.
Ever since iOS 16.4 came out, I am finding that quite a few devices that I used to be able to add from an iPad, now have to be added from an iPhone. Even things like my ring doorbell, which I definitely added with an iPad last time.
When I try to do it with an iPad, it just hangs and then eventually doesn’t connect. Do the exact same process on an iPhone and it goes right through.
I don’t know if there’s some new security protocol built-in, or if there’s some setting I have that I haven’t discovered yet, but this is definitely a real phenomenon and has affected multiple devices of multiple brands.
And it’s not about 2.4 versus 5 MHz both devices were on the exact same Network.
So I just wanted to mention it in case anybody else runs into this.
