WebGL will not be publicly available in iOS 5. It will only be available to iAd developers. Chris Marrin, WebKit Engineer
Read the article on http://atnan.com/blog/2011/11/03/enabling-and-using-webgl-on-ios/

You can read about WebGL on iOS in http://artpulse.me/articles/WebGL-on-iOS/

And take a look to the chart available on http://caniuse.com/webgl

This is an interesting question. I like ubercoder post on Apple forum :
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/36 ... 0&tstart=0 (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3609881?start=0&tstart=0)

In a resume : why would Apple allow webGL on Safari, as many developpers would leave the AppStore, and so Apple would lose :
% on paid games
% on InApp purchases
developpers license

So I totally +1 on ubercoder : Apple will never port webGL on the iPhone. This is of course a personal idea.
