Connection drops on iOS 11

Connection drops on iOS 11

On iOS the connection between iPad/iPhone and Control Unit might be dropped after ~90 seconds (on both the original app from Carrera and SmartRace). This is explicitly no issue with the app, but is caused by an incompatibility between the AppConnects firmware and iOS 11.

Carrera has confirmed that early charges of AppConnect are affected and they need to be sent to Carrera in order to have the firmware updated. An official statement of Stadlbauer is available confirming the issue and the procedure (available here, unfortunately only in german). Please contact your reseller for more information on the exact procedure.
