Not likely. For one, there is no easy way to get video in to an iPhone, other than as a file.

Newer cameras, like the 6D can tether via wifi to an iPhone or iPad...
Canon 7D

Is there any wire that i can use to connect my iphone to 1ds mark ii? I was thinking about using eye-fi card but it doesn't help at all because i want to use this in on location shoot since 1ds mark ii's screen is pretty small

you could get an eyefi card and a CF to SD card adapter and have the camera transmit the images over the eyefi to the phone or ipad... however its slow if its just JPG then its not gonna be too bad but if its raw you need the pro version that supports raw. if you are not shooting lots or frames in quick succession it will work

The 1Ds II is unfortunately not on DSLR Controller's device list otherwise I would suggest picking up a cheap android device:

7D, EOS M, S95, 40D, S40, 10S, ...
EF 70-200 f4.0 L, EF 17-40 f4.0 L, EF 40mm f2.8, EF 28-135,  Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX, ....

why dont you want to use eye-fi? other than the pig slow transfer speed and potentially unreliable connectivity :P

Because i'll be using it more on location shoot rather than studio/home. I already have macbook pro and the cable for tethered shooting. If only i can afford a 1dx then it wouldnt be such a big problem dealing with small lcd screen

The camera has an USB 1.1 port however no liveview. For checking the pictures on a larger screen you could look at the program Shuttersnitch which support different brands of WiFi cards.

I was looking through the website of shuttersnitch. Thanks for the input. I guess since I'm using an iphone, i can download the app then buy some eyr-fi card so i can use it...

Cam Ranger!!!! I love it. Everything you want and more!!!!!

For use with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

www.camranger.com $299, so it costs a little bit, but worth it I'd say.

From the site:

Capture & View Images
Capture images in all drive modes. Then view full resolution images in JPG or Canon RAW and optionally save to an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. CamRanger is a great wireless tethering solution.

Live View
Wirelessly stream live view to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. Complete focusing control with touch focus, incremental adjustments, and focus stacking.

View & Edit Camera Settings
Remotely change and view camera settings: Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, White Balance, Drive/Shooting Mode (Single, Continuous, etc.), AF, Metering Mode, Image Format, Auto Exposure Mode, and Exposure Compensation and Bracketing.

Record Movies
Wirelessly record movies to view and edit later. CamRanger supports touch focusing during movie recording for many Nikon and Canon cameras.

Intervalometer / HDR
Setup intervalometer (time lapse) or HDR on your CamRanger. No need for your iOS device to remain connected after the initial setup.

Macro & Focus Stacking
Perfect for macro photography where your camera is in awkward locations or very precise focus control is needed. Use automatic focus stacking for enhanced depth of field.
EOS 1V, EOS 5D MK III, EOS 7D, Rebel T3i, 70-200 f/2.8 IS USM L MK II, Nifty Fifty & Shorty Forty, EF-S 10-22 USM, 24-105 IS USM L, 100 IS USM L Macro, 2X Extender MK III, G9, and HF S-10.

...

The 1Ds II isn't on the supported hardware list for presumably the same reason as dslrcontroller  - the need for liveview.  It's still neat.
