I have an issue with pairing my camera to my iPhone.
I will describe in steps what I did and where it goes wrong:
1. I downloaded the EOS Remote app from the appstore
2. I enabled WiFi on my camera
3. I set-up a "WiFi-spot" with 'camera access point mode' (also tried through 'infrastructure mode')
4. I connected with my iPhone to the "WiFi-spot"
5. I opened the app (the app detects the camera automatically)
And there comes the issue:
6. When I tap the camera (or icon) to pair the camera and the phone the camera dissapears from the list and I lose connection with the "WiFi-spot" (then it reconnects back with my home WiFi) and when i return to my WiFi settings on the phone the "WiFi-spot" doesn't appear anymore.
To show what I mean with step 6: (in this video that step works, but not for me)
Step 6: 05:38
I have a new Canon 6D and I tested it on a iPhone 5 and a iPhone 5S both with iOS 7.1.2
I also downloaded the app on the iPad but there everything works perfect.
I hope someone encountered this issue before and have a solution!
ps. please release a full iPad app soon! 😄

I am having the same problem with the 70D and iphone 5s. Has anyone found an answer?

When pairing an EOS 70D to your phone, do the two attempt to make a connection? Check to ensure that you are using the latest version of the software.
