I've updated to the latest firmware/software, and figured some calibration is in order. I've been trying to calibrate the controller for about an hour. After chasing the little blue dots around, the right stick finally completes the circuit, but the left never does. The process moves much slower than displayed in the how to videos I've seen. Tried it with an iPhone 6s and an iPhone 8. What gives?

Still hangs up at the bottom left corner of the left stick. But I'll keep trying...

Got it. I noticed that when the left stick is in the lower left corner, it wasn't reading as 100%/100%. I applied pressure until it did read 100%/100%, and that got that dang ball moving again. What an absurd interface. Anyway, after 2 days I finally have a calibrated controller!
