I thought of another option, maybe better.  You could configure your web server
not to require authentication for image, style, and Javascript files.  So the
main page content, say in an HTML file, would be protected, but the images,
styles, and Javascript would be free to anyone who wanted them.  But the iOS app
users would only get asked to log in once.
