Apple doesn't even have permission systems.

Apple doesn't have a permission system? Have you used iOS? It has an excellent on-demand permission system. An app wants both location, camera, and microphone access? But you don't want it to have location access? Deny it! Only want it to have microphone access sometimes? OK!

Sadly, it does not automatically download. Even with automatic downloads on. It automatically appears in the list of purchases and automatically appears in iTunes in the Cloud (if you have that option enabled), but it didn't automatically download.

So if you can't id a user by any characteristics of the phone either (like device id or phone#), how can you create an external unique key to id the user in case he reinstalls? i.e. you effectively can't build an app that references your external server to provide data to that app?

(obviously not an Apple dev here...)

Correct. You're not supposed to. If a user uninstalls an app, ALL data relevant to the app must be deleted, including any UUID. UUIDs are keyed to a specific app install. There should be no way to uniquely identify a user across installs.

Have one absolute trusted password and one absolute trusted service. Encrypt all your site-specific passwords in there. Let the service fill out the passwords for you.

Make sure the service uses a Web of Trust style encryption so even defeating the password for the service won't leak any other data.
