Mozilla & Gecko clones "Jay Sullivan, Mozilla's VP of Product, has revealed that the not-for-profit organization is not going to build an iOS version of its Firefox web browser as long as Apple doesn't mend its unfriendly ways towards third party browsers." So that would most likely be never.

That's a really good question in fact. I believe that the difference is that you can take Mozilla's Firefox OS and replace Gecko by the Web engine of your choice, provided that that engine implements the same Web APIs that Mozilla added to support the various things needed on a phone --- which has already started, with Samsung already adding some of these APIs to WebKit. By contrast, you can't take Apple's iOS and replace WebKit by the Web engine of your choice.
