Not really. iOS and OSX are built on the same underlying technologies: they share the same OS X kernel and the iOS’s Cocoa Touch framework is derived from the Mac’s Cocoa framework. You can compile (possibly illegally) many standard OSX packages (e.g., command line code), and install them in a jailbroken iPhone. Or you can develop cross-platform apps by sharing the core code base. Not that it makes much sense, but the connection between iOS and OSX is definitely stronger than your claim :-)
