How to move anchor points stepless?

Whenever I move an anchorpoint in Illustrator for iPad it only does so in visible steps and not continuously like in Illustrator on Mac - even though I switched off all guides, rasters, rulers etc. I could find.

 

How do I switch that off?

I'm on Pc and iPad, it looks and feels like anchor points move very similarly on both devices to me.

There is no way to set incremental steps on the iPad.

I'm on Mac and iPad and no matter if I turn off any helpers like grids or rulers the anchors only move in 0,35mm steps. It prevents me from alligning anchors on files imported from Illustrator on Mac. It's annoying and renders the app near useless for me. I don't have the same issue in Vectornator or Affinity Designer on iPad and it sucks because I'd like to stay a happy loyal Illustrator user. Does anyone know how to get rid of this?! I can't be the only one with this #+$§§""## issue!

Sorry, it's actually 0,18mm steps.

I'm on iPad pro.
If those steps are big, you may not have turned off "Snapping"  in the "presicion" menu along the right side of the screen. Personal experience 😳.

I tried all of that before I asked here. I've been working with Adobe programs and especially Illustrator since the mid 90s, so that has been the first I tried. I've also searched for some deeper preferences options and didn't find any. The steps seem to vary a bit depending on how much I zoom, but they are still obvious steps and far from fluent and continuous. It feels like it snaps to some invisible pixel grid instead of working with vectors. 😕
