iPhone FM Go 16 loses connectivity

FileMaker Go 16 & FileMaker Server 16

The FMS is a Development Mac Mini running macOS Sierra 10.12.6


I need help/suggestions as to why, on occasion, I cannot connect to an App I developed using an iPhone.  The error message is "Error -The file (my file) could not be opened.  Either the host is not available or the file is not available on that host."


I cannot replicate this.  There are times when doing an iPhone power-off power-on cures the problem but that's not consistent and not something I expect my users to do.


Of course all of the basic items are fine such as the server is running, the file is open, I can access the file fine from my Mac etc.


I am losing faith in FM Go.  I am willing to try any am all suggestions the Community may have.


The iPhone also has FM Go 15 installed but that shouldn't be a problem.
