I just updated to IOS 1.0.7.  and I can't get audio from the phone.  I am using an iPhone 6. On the other version, if the speaker icon on top was X'ed out, I had audio from the speakers connected to the radio.  If I tapped on that icon and the X disappeared, I would get audio from the phone speakers.  On the new version, if the speaker is X'ed out I get no audio at all and if it is not X'ed I get audio from the flex speakers.  What do I need to do to get audio from the iPhone speakers?  In the audio settings, changing the "Default to Speaker" has no affect.  I have turned it off and on and still no audio through iPhone speakers.

Hi Burch,

in the past (before 1.0.7), the speaker switch at the top was no mute button but had the same function as the big "remote" button in SmartSDR for Windows. When using this button, you toggle between local radio or remote iPhone/iPad sound.

In the new version (upon request) it is now so that this button is a real mute button. For switching between remote and local audio, you need to use the Audio Menu and the "Device Audio" switch.

So if there is no audio, first check if the Audio -> Device Audio switch is on (green). Then un-mute with the top Speaker icon. If there is still no audio, check if slice audio is muted or not loud enough and finally check your device physical volume.

The new settings (Default to Speaker) should not really matter as Audio would either come out of the top earpiece speaker or the bottom speakers. This is the purpose of this button.

For Harold, KM6CQ it turned out to be necessary to deinstall the old App and reinstall the new version 1.0.7 again from the App Store. For others, this step was not necessary so it is unclear if that was really necessary to fix his problem.

Please let me know if this information helps.
