An interesting details is that the Firefox Desktop UA receives the good version of the content with the right mime type. And the site is responsive and adjusts to small screen size. So we should ask to receive the content they send to desktop, which I believe is the one they send to iOS.
Same classical issue. I have the feeling there is a specific framework used by many companies.
