If its yellow it means that that background image doesnt have proper HDRI attached to it, its just a panoramic image with no lighting info attached. This can happen with images that just have their extension changed to the needed format. I had been looking into how to add the information manually but have not yet had time to dive into it.

@Jim WilsonHi again the issue is this creates a sphere of the image and places the you in the centre.

the panorama pic from IPhone may need to go on an extruded ring around the centre of the user origin as a texture.

will see.

@Jim WilsonSo the way to get a Pano image from Iphone working is to make the image square.

This is rough as a test but i made the bottom black and copied the sky up (will have to blend it in) so this can work.

You can pan around to see the surroundings so this should work for what i wan to do.
