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.

They always attempt to mask political reasons into technical ones. Which only added to their hypocrisy.

There's no conspiracy to it. Just Apple's excuses for assholish behaviour. Forced obsolescence, DRM, anti-competitive actions, they and their fanbois will always make up semi-plausible excuses for what can more reasonably explained by profit motives.
