My understanding is this is a basic problem about using session cookies. 
In iOS, the browser "session" can end even without "closing" the 
browser, buy switching to another app, and the OS deciding it needs the 
memory from the browser so it unloads it, causing the cookies to 
disappear. Perhaps using a "long-lived" login cookie, but that has other 
security issues, and I am not positive that iOS browsers keep those 
either (and many more people have these disabled by default).
