Mobile version mate connector anchors not showing up

I am watching a tutorial for using mate connectors and it PC based.  When the instructor selects the fasten mate connector he says you hove over the faces or edges of a part and you that circle with the 3 different colored axis' shows up.  I cannot get it to show up n the mobile version on my iPad.  Does anyone know how you use mate connectors on the mobile version?

    Hi @kenneth_lowry ,

    If you select a fasten mate and then hold your finger down on the screen (instead of tapping), it will bring up the precision selector (looks like a large crosshair).  This will act like hovering on the browser version, and will allow you to place mate connectors.
