iOS Roku Mobile App doesn't stay connected

For some reason, my iPhone Xs Max will disconnect for no reason.  Sometimes its 30 seconds, sometimes its a few minutes.  The phone does not go into lock mode, it just reports that it's disconnected and you have to connect again. Thoughts?

Uninstall your app once and again download and configure it with your Roku TV.

It will help you.

@dkardell 

Thanks for the note here. Are you minimizing the app to the background, or locking your iPhone screen after initially connecting to your Roku device? Have you reviewed your phone's settings to see if any may relate to this behavior, such as power management, battery saving, or data restriction features, etc.? 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Not in the background.  Sitting there on the remote screen.  I'm an ios developer myself so trying to think why this would be happening.  If you select retry connect it finds it and all is good.  It's just that another 90 seconds and it disconnects again.  Running the latest and greatest on everything

Same problem here but it tells me that in order to use private listening I must disconnect mobile because of too many connections????
