You should post to the MAC site. See what the Apple users have to say.  IOS devices are all over the place and hard to keep up with.

About 10 years ago, I tried to burn some mp4's to play on a neighbors MAC laptop.

I couldn't get it to work. I didn't know what needed to be changed either. He didn't know anything about it.
 I burned a few disks trying different formats. Including MOV.
Nothing worked. Windows and Apple don't seem to like each other all that much. I never did figure out how to get a disk to play on that lap top. It wasn't that important and a long time ago.
I've read the IOS format for I-phones is a moving target.MP4 works great with some phones but not with others.

Apple can kiss my fill in the blank. Sometimes I think they keep their formats Overly- proprietary and difficult to work with because they think they going to squeeze out the competition and monopolize everything one day.

 A company that makes so much money. Their employees are walking into the giant glass wall of their new circular  building, because they cannot actually see it.

They dropped support for QuickTime for Windows which includes the MOV. codecs. You can actually install the codecs without the QuickTime player, but that's another story.
 That was a direct attack on  Windows users. Diminishing their capabilities. I wouldn't activate an I-phone if you gave me one.

OKAY, I got that rant off my chest.  I don't know if there's a magic bullet for you? Maybe you should consult an I-Phone support specialist?
