Events run at 1x 2x 4x icon

When playing/running an Event I like to run them in 2x or 4x speed. But every time I click the 1x icon the event restarts and not at a higher speed. I end up tapping the 1x,2x,4x icon several several times to activate. Perhaps make that icon bigger and move it away from the line of play duration. I can’t be the only person with pudgy fingers having this issue.
Is it also possible to set my playback speed to 4x?

Don’t know if I’ve listed this properly?
Is this the correct forum to address this issue?

I believe this is an issue with the iOS app. It has previously been reported by @resist:
