Hi, is it possible to change the type on the email field so the iPhone recognises it?

Not the built in Email class. You could create your own Email field subclass really easily. Subclass EmailField and override the Field() function to return the Html you want. Will be all a lot easiest in 3.0 when you will be able to theme your own form fields.
