You can now deploy to Android from Mac, Windows, and with LiveCode
v5.5.2 even Linux.
For iOS, Apple is aware that 87% of the world uses Windows but provides
no tools for that platform. Since their EULA prohibits using OS X on
anything other than "Apple branded hardware", it would seem Apple
prefers that most of the world devote their time to developing
exclusively for Android. ;)
I suspect this will eventually change, but in the meantime the only
legal way to deploy to iOS is to buy another computer from Apple.
