Wrong font weight on iOS device preview

When I preview my designs on my iPhone X, it always shows a very thin font weight. This makes it very difficult to design with Adobe XD. When I preview on the computer, it displays correctly but this isn't nearly as helpful to look at. The font I'm using is a Google font called IBM Plex Sans. I have confirmed it's displaying the correct font but the weight is wrong. Please help!

    ...Specifically the weights 'Regular' and 'Semi-bold' fail. All other weights in the Gibson font family retain their style within the apps live preview.

    Wrong font weight still showing. Actually I've noticed it's defaulting to an incorrect font. When I cycle through either font sizes or font weights the live preview on the app flicks between the correct font and weight to another font at the wrong weight.

    I'm using the latest app as of 13 March 2019 on both iPhoneX and iPhoneSE and version of the desktop application on a MacBook Pro. OS High Sierra 10.13.6

    Hope it can be fixed soon as you can imagine it's displaying so many things incorrectly.
