Safari Mobile doesn't support dblclick.

"When the iPhone first arrived, one of the coolest things that Apple did was to have Mobile Safari display a miniature view of an entire web site, allowing users to double tap and zoom into the portions of the site that they wanted to see. This clever solution to navigate large pages in a small screen came with a price.

If your site takes advantage of the double click functionality, when it is displayed on Mobile Safari you loose that capability, your clicks become touch events and the double click (double-tap) now belongs to the browser."

Closing as this is not a jQuery bug. The iPhone and iPad (as mentioned) do not support the concept of a double click. The suggested URL above does however provide one of the possible solutions for getting double-tap to work.
