Can DansGuardian software filter for all devices on the network such as iPhones, iPad, etc. I want to be able to use this client to filter all the traffic on the network without having to install software on individual devices. Does DansGuardian software have this functionality?

The functionality you mention depends on your router/squid tie in as a transparent proxy.
I.e. your router auto rerouted port 80 requests to the proxy as long as the request is not coming from the proxy.

Squid wccp with Cisco routers.
Check the equipment you have if you can define the policy to handle the forwarding of requests.

Yes it does. You can either use features in your router to force all port 80 traffic through the dansG server. Or make the dansG server your LAN gateway (dhcp settings is the easy way) all traffic no matter what device will go through dansG
