I could easily get the arduino to appear to be a MIDI device, since that merely involves using a specific "protocol" for moving data AND there are many arduino project which use the arduino for MIDI processing, input and output.

Unfortunately you need an official made for iOS device to use mergAccessory. It’s a special program that hardware manufacturers have to sign up to. Apple being Apple keep control of the ecosystem of hardware. Best bet is to look for a made for iphone thing that is designed as an interface to arduino or something.
