Hello, @malcolmp274. GoPro App's range is between 35-50 feet depending on the wireless interference in your area.
Please make sure that your mobile devices are updated to the latest OS version and that you have the latest version of the GoPro App installed. After the updates, restart your phone and try pairing with the camera again. See if this clears out the issue with connectivity.
For further troubleshooting steps, check out Troubleshooting GoPro App Connectivity Issues . There is a portion in this article that discusses the supported Wi-Fi band and regional connectivity.

Thank you for the update, @malcolmp274. To verify, did your testing result in getting a 10-meter range for Wi-Fi using the iPad and the iPhone? This range would sound about right although not the ideal maximum range. The difference could be attributed to possible existing interference in the area.

I reload the Firmware on the GoPro and reset both the iPhone and iPad.
what I also found is the aspect of the camera made a difference for some reason. If I was at 90deg to the camera achieved the best range but the other way range went down to 5m. Strange?
