As noted by TouchArcade, there was a version of the original Myst game released for iOS devices back in 2009, but this version is free to download and play.

Myst, the 2021 Game of the Year winner on the Mac App Store, is now available on iOS!
Welcome to Myst: a starkly beautiful island, eerily tinged with mystery and shrouded in intrigue. Available now, to download and begin your adventure FOR FREE!
Journey to Myst Island and begin to unravel the mystery you have been thrust into. As you learn what happened on the island, you will find yourself playing a key role in an epic story whose ending has not yet been written.
The island is full of secrets – learn your surroundings and discover what you can interact with. Each puzzle you solve will bring you closer to exploring more of the island, and reveal methods to reach other stunning and surreal worlds called “Ages”.
With an in-app purchase to unlock the other Ages of Myst, you will see even greater challenges await you, and discover deeper connections and puzzles that Myst has to offer. Uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal, and make choices that will affect both you, and the world of Myst itself.
For those who are already familiar with Myst, this version is built from the ground up and available to play in real-time 3D. It’s teeming with new art, new sound, re-imagined interactions, accessibility options, localization for many different languages, and even optional puzzle randomization.
OPTIMIZED FOR IOS
For M1 and M2 iOS devices such as the latest generations of the iPad Pro and iPad Air, players will find that the graphics settings of Myst Mobile default to “Epic” settings, which is the highest the graphics settings of Myst can possibly be set to on any platform. Explorers of Myst Mobile on M1 and M2 devices will be able to revel in the game’s beauty like never before on mobile!
