Mastodon now has an official app for iPhones, you can get it from the App Store:

apps.apple.com/app/mastodon-fo

(The app is FOSS, the source code is at github.com/mastodon/mastodon-i )

The official app is aimed at new users who aren't familiar with the Fediverse. It streamlines the signup process and hides some features such as the Federated timeline.

However, because Mastodon is built on open standards, it has lots of unofficial apps too. There's a complete list at:
