Sure, since LO is what tells Apple what locales/regions/languages to
offer in iOS.
Since there are apps which offer a manual selection, even if the platform developers are cavemen, it still means the app developers can be more intelligent than that.
You may not like it, but that's the answer.

The code for the remote is in git-repo.
I really look forward to the day German will have been replaced by Denglish and since only a handful of enthusiasts and people in remote rural areas still speak it, no commercial developer is willing to support it any longer because who cares about 190,000 speakers of an old form of German. Maybe then some folk will come off their pedestals. It's not a question of me personally not liking it, it's against the LO philosophy mate, unless it has recently been rewritten.

You might also want to consider whether the next 10 million LO users will come from Germany or Russia or whether they will be found in the far flung corners of Africa or Asia speaking languages like Yao or Bambara, most of which are not supported by Android or iOS & Co. Cutting yourself off from that userbase by saying 'it's Apple's fault' is counterproductive in more ways than one.

Nice move, just pointing a translator at the code. I like having my nose pushed in the fact I can't code for toffee even though I'd love to. But let me just point out that again, that's against the LO philosophy because the end-user equivalent of that is 'don't bother me with reporting this bug, there's the code, you fix it'.
