I wouldn't say it's a port of of Pd, not as an application.
It's a port of Pd to support a specific application class
with its own interfaces.
The GUI for Pd on a tablet would be quite different anyway,
to take advantage of that device's touch gestures, a direct
port of the keyboard oriented interface would miss an opportunity.
Regarding Apple, who are only one manufacturer of mobile
and tablet devices; I think this is a moral issue that can
be easily settled by watching this famous advertisement,
and comparing the stance implied there with their position
25 years later.
