iOS still supports a lot of Javascript. I haven't tested it, but I got a 
feeling things like BUEditor would still work. You don't get the 
WYSIWYG, but at least have the helper buttons for inserting markup.

As far as the user agent idea, the TinyMCE has done that since 3.3.4:


However a better solution would be in Drupal to disable Wysiwyg on iOS 
devices and enable BUEditor. That's actually something I need to work on 
myself over the next couple of days for a client.
