Since there are no known issues with RadAjaxLoadingPanel on iPhone, this could be related to the custom implementation and with the provided information only it will be impossible for us to determine what could be causing it.
With the above in mind, you could open a regular support ticket and attach a simplified version of your project that replicates the problem and that could be tested on our side.
