The ignorable 404 list in global_settings should include some patterns to suppress the awful racket that iphones can make when hitting a site.
Specifically, the IGNORABLE_404_STARTS setting should include 'apple-touch-icon.png' for sure.
It's debatable if it should also include '/m/', '/mobi/, '/mobile/', '/iphone/', and /pda/. I'm not sure if those are a bot, or actually some versions of the phone itself, but 404s for those urls are pretty common.
