I would suggest either breadwallet or blocktrail to use for your iOS... The benefits vary for each wallet you can get on iOS, but with breadwallet you can actually connect to the blockchain network, and with blocktrail you can still have your security key words...

Do your own research though and figure out which one is best for you.

Where is it? ETA??

I'd recommend you to choose BlockTrail wallet , they may be new but they are pretty good and they have great potentials also the design is sick !
I also made a topic about them , so people give their suggestions (so in case you use and you have suggestions to be added you post here) : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1181934.0

I'm guessing there isn't one officially made by the bitcoin community like bitcoin core?

I guess this is it  : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet (but there is a version for iOS)

Yes I know there is for Android. There isn't one for iOS. That's what I was asking. I feel more comfortable with public open software you know.

I can't tell , maybe they simply forgot to update the website or maybe there is x time to wait before theymos or whoever the owner of bitcoin.org add the wallet (until he see reviews etc ...  )

breadwallet source code is public and it's an amazing app. I've tried several wallets for iOS and none struck my eye as breadwallet did. It's simply amazing. Has enough functionality for a mobile wallet, it's simple, secure, very nicely developed and the developer is pretty much always around to help and answer questions. It's a very solid and nice project.

There are quite a few wallets. I don't see a need for more, unless some groundbreaking client is coded... A new client would bring the same functionality as another client already has. There's enough competition, a new product would most likely add to the confusion.

breadwallet is officially created by the bitcoin community! I am a member of the bitcoin community and I wrote it, so it's official. Smiley

breadwallet supports features like importing private keys.

it's the first SPV wallet for iOS, (meaning it connects directly to the bitcoin network, and doesn't trust or rely on servers operated by the wallet provider) and it's the first SPV wallet that runs on a malware hardened platform.

only you control your private keys, and they are held in the secure enclave using strong hardware backed AES encryption, so you have protection even if the phone is stolen.

blocktrail looks very nice, however it is what's called a "server-trusting" wallet. It relies on a server run by blocktrail. When their server goes down, your funds become unavailable until you import your keys into another wallet.

I completely agree. Thanks for the post. I like breadwallet so far.

Yeah, I tend to put the majority of my bitcoins I want "mobile" on my phone... and then whatever is remaining on my desktop wallet.  With breadwallet though, I tend to feel even more secure about storing my bitcoins on there than anywhere else because of the security measures they use; they even allow the fingerprint authentication for you to easily access your wallet without the hassle of entering in some long password you created for the wallet, which I find very convenient.

An iOS device is much more secure by default than any of the popular desktop environments. Desktop systems aren't hardware encrypted, don't have app sandboxing, don't require code signatures, etc...

Read the iOS security white paper for more info: https://www.apple.com/business/docs/iOS_Security_Guide.pdf

There is currently a million dollar bounty for anyone who can remotely compromise an iOS device: https://www.zerodium.com/ios9.html

But you can't run a full node from an iOS device. I prefer full node security over the security of a mobile device since my desktop is much harder to steal, I don't do stupid things like click random links so I don't get viruses, and I can run a full node for my own protection and to help the network.

Is it possible to access the same funds using my laptop (bitcoin-qt) and my iPhone (bread) and keep the two wallets in sync?

You should never store Bitcoin private keys on a desktop system unless you are a security expert who knows how to harden that system against malware. Bitcoin is digital cash and requires a much higher standard of security than a typical web service login.

It's not a desktop system.  I said laptop. You answer was nothing but spam. DUH I know it's digital cash and that I am my own bank....
