This will be a much better game than the run, only reason it wouldn't do well would be the other, better racing games releasing for PS4 around the same time.

There's no deal struck.
The team that's developing this for iOS is owned by EA so there's no need for any deal.

And I noticed others saying The Run was cancelled for iOS because of the lack of success for the console one.
That wasn't the case.
There's reasons but that's not one of them.
It simply wasn't far enough along to launch at the right time and didn't differentiate itself enough from Shift 1 and 2 and focus was shifted to Most Wanted.
Simple as that. Console success and iOS success don't necessarily correlate.

On another note, that poster you replied to is only a spammer with hidden links in the smileys so its best to ignore those types in the future as they get removed anyway.

well it's not 100% sure that it's coming out for our phones but there are some rumours, and I hope that we'll know more this week, and I'm really into this title, and is it sure that IB3 is coming for smartphones ??

The release date for the game on PC, Xbox, PS3 and other platforms is near, but I still haven't heard anything new about iOS/Android release. Has anybody else more info ?
