since a view days, the pencel tool at the mobile app is limited to 1 pt. Drawing fine filigran lines in zoom mode is no longer possible, because the thickness of 0,15 pt etc. , like in AI desktop version, is necessary.

Its not true !!!!! If you put stroke under 1 in properties tge line become transparent.
its been like this for a month !
Yes this doesn't work. I am having the same problem. All stroke weights below 1pt become transparent, it doesn't matter if you type in the number or use the slider. Is there any fix coming for this?
A workaround that I'm using for now:
I opened up an older document with some pencil tool lettering that I had done before in .25 line weight. I copied one of the objects to my clipboard, then exited the document and went back to Home. I opened up my current artwork pasted it inside. As long as that bit of lettering is that last thing I select/click on, I'm able to go back to the pencil tool and it will open up with the same .25 line weight.
If I switch to the paint tool or do anything else, and then come back to the pencil tool, it again blocks at 1pt minimum and goes transparent at anything less. So when that happens, I again Select my copy/pasted object at .25 pt and when I go back to the pencil tool, it's set to that weight.
This is a really annoying problem and I hope a fix is coming soon!
I don't know why it works for me and not for those of you who are posting on this thread. Here is another screenshot where I set the stroke to .5, then duplicated it so you can see the settings. The line is not transparent on my iPad.

(The lighter line weight that you can see in the lettering on this document is from some older work, before this bug started. My photos show the line becoming transparent below 1pt on my drawing of the arrow.)
I'm facing with the same problem on my Ipad pro.
Didn't use Illustrator for a couple month and now I can see my previous works that has <1 lines but I can't draw any?
Did you ever hear back from adobe?
Or have you figured out a way to fix it?
I'm facing with the same problem on my Ipad (sic) pro.
Did you report it as a bug to Adobe? If not, you can do it here:
I discovered, finally just click on the stroke you want to reduce, and then delete the 1pt, and add wave number you want. Check the screenshot I sent:
