I dont have any issues "yet" with the new firmware and according to the app I am up to date with both the bird and controller. My question is why does the controller show up as an unknown device in the DJI 2 assistant?

Curious, which version of Assistant 2 are you using?  Version 1.1.6 or 1.1.8?

I tried 1.1.8 in Windows 10-64 and the Microsoft Defender anti-virus threw up a red "Severe" notice after a few hours and quarantined it as having a Trojan.  Didn't happen with older 1.1.6 though.  Maybe your Apple device may have done the same with 1.1.8 and why it's not recognizing the device?  I since deleted all of it and found a version of 1.1.6 to replace it.

1.1.6 is the only one I see on the downloads page for the P4P

I also found and tried DJIA2 1.1.8 and the same "unknown device" message. Apparently the RC has to be updated by the app. Doesn't make sense and I like to use a computer and not worry about using an iPhone to do firmware upgrades on a 1k plus piece of equipment.

Sorry, I didn't note the P4P in the topic as this is posted in the Phantom P4 Standard forum and not the P4 Pro forum.

However, version 1.1.8 is still shown in the P4 Standard downloads here: Assistant 2 Version 1.1.8

Odd the two versions though.

The aircraft can be upgraded using either method, but as you say, RC is via App' only (jump to 2:35 for RC):-
