GnuPG is a crypto tool, which implements standards like OpenPGP
and Cryptographic Message Syntax.
An email application is needed in addition
to read and send OpenPGP/MIME or S/MIME emails.
(There are other tools, that also implement those standards.)
So your question can be understood in several dimentions:
a) is there a port (or distribution) of GnuPG
Not really. Details: There used to be
but it is unmaintained and outdated.
So it is technically feasable, but not one does the work.
b) is there a port (or distribution) of GnuPG
Not that I know of.
Details: There are probably technical and license challenges to port
GnuPG to iOS. While I believe that it is possible to port C applications
to iOS, it is unclear if someone could place it is in the appstore.
Note that GnuPG ports to MacOSX exist.
c) Are there compatible OpenPGP and OpenPGP/MIME implementations for
Yes, e.g. Openkeychain + K9Mail (both being Free Software)
d) Are there compatible OpenPGP and OpenPGP/MIME implementations for iOS?
Yes, though proprietary Software (AFAIK), for example I've heard about
Canary Mail, iPGMail, PGPro, Safe Easy Privacy
