Mac usually doesn't see WiFi iPhone

My M1 iMac's finder used to see my iPhone & iPad sitting on its charger about half of the time. I used to have some difficulties dragging files across, but lately, finder *never* sees these devices via WiFi.

I plugged them into the iMac and verified that "Show this iPad when on WiFi" is checked. I verified that everything is on the same network. All of their operating systems are current. Universal Control works with my iPad not being plugged in, so my iMac sees my iPad, but Finder doesn't (when not plugged in).

Any idea what I'm missing?
