Syncing iPhone resets preferences to default

I want to set my day to start at midnight and my new cards to appear first when I review. I am able to make these changes on my iPhone’s Anki app, but every time I sync, the app reverts to the day starting at 04:00 (which is actually 05:00 in my time zone for some reason) and the new cards being mixed in with the review cards. This is not a new problem caused by an update – it has always been like this for me.

Is there a way to update these preferences so that the app remembers them when it syncs? Thank you!

Normally it should sync correctly if you haven’t made changes on another device, but if for some reason that is not working, making the change and then forcing a full upload, choosing download on your other devices, should bring things into sync.

OK, thank you!
