    You can try the following:

    Ensure the Xamarin.iOS version running on MacOS and VS are identical (recommended by Xamarin Team) Sometimes the same happens with me if the network changes (office, mobile hotspot, home etc), in that case:

    • Navigate to /Users/YourAccountName/AppData/Xamarin/MonoTouch and delete all the files within the folder.
    • Select the Xamarin Mac Agent (Tools > iOS > Xamarin Mac Agent).
    • Disconnect and forget the agent (You need to right click on relevant mac listed (by IP or DNS name) to get the options).
    • Add Agent again (enter the IP address, then you will be prompted to enter your user name and password).
    • Optionally restart VS

    I understand this may not be an optimal fix but then it gets the job done ;)

    Try and share your feedback.
