That's weird. If you type in the elite soldier pack for iOS version on google, there are piles of articles saying that's included. So that was misinformation? Pretty much every iOS article that says elite pack in it says it's in the game.

Even Order & Chaos with constant wifi and power-hungry engine is lasting for around 4 hours, give or take a few minutes.
So, either X-COM is able to use the whole CPU/GPU power of an iP6 or it is poorly optimized.
Yeah I wish it could be fixed. It's funny to think that this game will kill my iphone even when it's on the charger :O I'm too afraid to even play this if I'm not at home with my laptop charge. That's pretty much the only downside to this game, and sadly it's kind of big just because it limits your play time.

I found this:

Just keep in mind that the iPad version will not include any of XCOM’s currently released DLC. That means iPad users will miss the potent Second Wave patch, which dramatically enhances gameplay. They’ll also miss the Slingshot pack and the Elite Soldier pack.

Taken from: http://m.nydailynews.com/entertainment/system-update-closer-ios-version-xcom-enemy-unknown-article-1.1359611

What I do remember is that second wave was included in an update, where you got to choose different options (if I remember well, it was a long time since I last played) such as extreme difficulty, reduced economics, etc. Depending on the difficulty level on which you finished the first wave, you got more or less options for the second wave. Here's the article:

It's universal, but on iPhone the text looks tiny tiny. That's why they only talk about iPad.

Personally, i think it looks ok on the iPhone. I finished this game before on my iPhone 5. On the 5s, i did a LOT of attempts on Classic Ironman and did a lot of multiplayer. Text size was ok to me but i think that's subjective
