I’ve been running Zwift off my iphone 7 for a month without issues (using the HDMI dongle to show on TV), and in the past week I’ve experienced 3 crashes. These tend to be on longer rides (40km routes) and very frustratingly have happened 2-3km before the end of the route! The first two were on free rides where I just wanted to get the badge, the last one (this morning) was in the middle of a 2x20 training session which I had to abandon.
Each time I restarted Zwift it dropped me back in with the correct distance travelled so far, BUT, I had lost the Drops, Ride Ons and more importantly the ability to gain the route badge that I’d just spent over an hour trying to get.
It’s pretty de-motivating to be honest. I should say I’m running Spotify in the background, but as I said it worked fine for the first 2-3 weeks of pretty much daily riding.
Happened to me this morning. Boom!!! with 1.5 miles to go it just drops out. I run IPad without any connections to other devices. My companion app on my IPhone also went dark. I had just updated Zwift on my IPad just this morning and before this AM it was rock solid.
Interesting! I tried a shorter training ride this morning after I’d purged the RAM on the phone and that seemed to go okay without a hitch. So will try a longer ride in the next day or two and see if that helps. And maybe try a race or group event too.
So after some testing on longer rides (1.5hrs is long enough for me), I can confirm I’ve had no issues with crashing since I’ve been purging the RAM on my phone each time before I start a ride, so hopefully that’s that.
