 I need help getting my Iphone X to work with SDR IOS.
When help vertically, I have multiple windows of the same thing and don't know how to move them off the screen. When I switch to horizontal, I then can see the panadaptor and I can key the PTT, but how do I talk over the iPhone?   Do I need an external blue tooth mic? t have the latest SDR IOS. So I don't know what you mean by "tuning wheel'   I have seen a horizontal slider that changes freq -but at a slow rate.

They have a very good manual on how to use the program.

The tuning wheel is a slider you refer
That tuning wheel frequency slider generates more noise in receiver
When held down
Apparently it increases sensitivity when pressed
Signals seem more clear , able to hear them better
Thought it might be a program bug

Mike,

I do not notice any changes in sensitivity when operating the slider to change frequencies in SDR iOS  (2.4.9 in the Flex at home, and iPhone X).

I believe that the pressure sensitivity is a function of the iOS operating system and not the SmartSDR iOS software.  The pressure sensitivity is called 3D Touch, and, I believe it is available only on iPhones.  It is not available on my iPad Pro, and perhaps not on any of the ipads.  It is adjustable, however.  Google for instructions on how to change the sensitivity.

Talking about Receive Noise increase not
Anything due to touch screen sensitivity

I misunderstood your original post.  I thought you were referring to the sensitivity of the control.  I should have read it more carefully - Sorry!
