Have an iPhone 6S or later, try Roli's free Seaboard 5D app

It responds to the pressure sensitive display on the 6S and later iPhones which is fun.
Some older iPhones will work but without the pressure sensitivity.
It's free although you can purchase additional sounds.
I played around with the free sounds only and enjoyed it.
Don't think you can output over MIDI which is a shame.

Works well on iphoneSE and iPad Air. Both iOS 10 something. (If I move to 11 then I lose some cool 32 bit apps). And it works well wirelessly with the Roli keyboard.
Fun stuff and can be a serious music tool.

Can I check I'm not misunderstanding something here... Is this basically a Roli Seaboard on your phone, or is it to be used in conjunction with a real Roli?

I have an iPhone 6 which may work

Despite my post count, I know nothing. Think of me as the court jester!

It's a cut down of the OS version of the Roli synth. Lot's of fun and a few really cool patches. You don't need a Roli keyboard to make it work but it works great with the Roli keyboard.

The only downside I found so far was that the OS version has some awesome patches that aren't in the iOS version. So for live use one has to make due with the patches in the iOS version. Imagine showing up to a gig with only your phone, Roli keyboard and a cable or two to get the sound from the phone to the mixing board.

There are also keyboards on Garageband where you can you can move your finger up and down the keys vertically for more vibrato or whatever just like a roli
