I'm trying to understand which is better for this case: a "milestone" labels for a slider.
For an iOS mobile app. Above or Below the slider? Illustration:
Would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
Best regards, Roi

Definitely agree on above the slider for mobile because of the thumb. I would also encourage considering how accurate your users need the slider value to be because of the steering effect and whether it adds value to have the milestone or labels (in addition to the icons) at all.
Let's say you are using this for 'Mouse Speed' and 'Volume' and these are 2 vertical sections in a mobile layout. If you use little larger and bold font for 'Mouse Speed' and 'Volume' as section title and then above sliders you are already using like ... Faster and Target Volume ... labels. I think this much is enough info for a user to understand what these sliders are for. No need to add above or below icon labels.
