Resolved - Meta Quest App - Blank Screen on iOS 16.2+

Level 4
After installing the Meta Quest app on my iPhone 13 Pro Max and pairing all was well and worked OK. After going back to the app on my iPhone the screen flashes briefly and then goes blank (light grey). The exact same happens on my iPad as well. If I uninstall both and and reinstall then it all works fine again, until I close the app and then try and re use later.
iPhone 13 Pro Max - Model MLLA3B/A - iOS Version - 16.1.2
iPad 2018 6th Gen - Model MR722B/A - iOS Version - 15.6.1
The video is not great but shows the issue. I cannot find anyone else having a similar issue anywhere.

Here's how I got @andersonhoard 's suggestion to turn airplane mode on and off. to work. I saw some folks mention it wasn't working. I had to perform it in this exact order to make it work for me. While this is not optimal, it's better than uninstalling/reinstalling. This is the sequence I used to make it work:
    1. Open the Meta Quest app (immediately get a gray screen 😠 ).
    2. Navigate to Settings and turn ON airplane mode.
    3. Navigate back to the Meta Quest app and swipe to close the app.
    4. Navigate back to  Settings and turn OFF airplane mode.
    5. Navigate back to the Meta Quest app and it should launch correctly. 

I hope this works for you, too.

Found a bit of a work around. Go onto chrome. Search for a vr game. (Any should work) then select the top result and it should open it in the app without issue

Hey there @Taquill! Sounds like you've definitely made an attempt to resolve your issue. No worries, let's make sure your mobile device meets the following requirements:

  • Delete the app from your iPhone, restart your device, then re-install the app.

Let us know if that was able to work for you. Please note that installing the Meta Quest mobile app on an unsupported device, may cause issues setting up your headset.

Make sure your iphone Bluetooth is enabled and you're on the same wifi band as your Quest.  Also, after you've reinstalled the app and it seems to work ok, try signing out, then sign in again.  I needed to do this a little while ago with my iPhone 12.
