Live reload stops working on device every so often


Hey guys big Ionic fan - hoping I can get a bit of help with this sporadic issue.

I develop an IOS app and really love the live reload feature. It works brilliantly however every so often it stops working and I have to restart my phone.

I can see on my laptop that I get a bunch of ios-deploy processes which I can quickly kill with killall iOS-deploy but I still need to restart my phone each time this happens which is quite time costly.

Phone is iPhone 6 IOS9 and macbook pro retina 2012 running Yosemite.

Has anyone got a solution for this?


Live reload works using your existing wifi. It accesses the computer’s resources over the network. If your network is not strong or your router is not behaving properly, live reload often fails.
