Xamarin.iOS application freezes on iOS 13

KG_uaKG_ua Member

I have Xamarin Native (iOS/Android) application. The application works without problems on iOS 12 and below. If you run the application on the device with iOS 13, then it starts to freeze for unknown reasons and this bug doesn't have clear steps to reproduce, it occurs on different screens.

This is stacktrace from Visual Studio for Mac

The first thing that comes to mind is problems with disposing of some NSObject (possible some memory leak), but it is very strange that this problem doesn't reproduce on slower devices with a lower version of iOS.

Please tell me if anyone else has encountered a similar problem. Are there any assumptions about the source of the problem?

    Thank you BobWhitten for your answer, I also saw that there was a problem with bluetooth that you wrote about, but in my application I do not use bluetooth API.

    I found the reason of this bug and it related to disposing of MKMapView. On few screens where I display map I added Overlays (MKCircle) and OverlayRenderers (MKCircleRenderer) to the map and references to those Overlays and OverlayRenderers contains in private variables. So the main problem was is that during of screen disposing was disposed only map (MKMapView) object but not private variables with references to map Overlay and OverlayRenderer. After adding explicit disposing of this variables this bug has disappeared.

    I was having the same problem yesterday, seemingly out of nowhere. I had updated VS (PC ver, to 16.3.2) and also XCode (turned it to 11), then Apple auto-updated my iPad and my app quit working. But there were other apps that worked.

    I tried things (updated to 16.3.3, changing linker options, etc), but nothing worked. Then I saw a comment like "does your app use bluetooth?", which mine does. I was getting nuisance reports from Apple that I needed to add a permission string, and pop-ups at start about bluetooth.

    I added this to info.plist (note: edited from original response):
    NSBluetoothAlwaysUsageDescription
    Allow App to use Bluetooth to access MyCompany Wireless Devices

    And things started to work. My suspicion is that there is a bug in the pop-up making that causes this. So, the same effect could happen for something unrelated to bluetooth.

    Additional note: Of course, today, retrying with newer code, I have the same issue. Retrying after deleting the app from my iPad -- works now. I believe this is still related to the permissions thing (and that removing the app removed the memory of the permission, so enabled it to work).

    Update for deployed apps -- When the user updates to iOS 13, the bluetooth app permission pops up. If they click "Don't Allow", the bluetooth will not be available in the app. This can get undone by going to Privacy, the Bluetooth and turning app to ON.
