For a portable solution you may try the QT toolkit which may or may not have classes for accessing Databases from C++ programs

I guess for iphone you better use CoreData, that' s not a really DB stuff but I guess it's the nearest you can get. I have not access to an iphone but I could imagine that compiling SQLite on it should be doable and that would be a nice embeddable SQL engine....
