Does anyone know why there would be a difference in objects between the SkySafari Plus App on my iPhone and SkySafari Plus on my iPad? When I search ISS on the iPhone, SkySafari includes the Nauka satellite launched on 7/21. When I search ISS on my iPad, there is no Nauka satellite. Both apps have the latest updates. It’s really got me scratching my head.

The satellite data is not embedded in the app.  It is downloaded automatically each week (or you can download manually).  Go to Settings > Solar System and tap the “Update minor body orbit data” button at the bottom of the screen.  If both were last updated on the same day, they should have the same objects.
