Yes. These platforms are not officially supported because no one has
volunteered to run regression tests regularly for them.

It is not possible for a Boost developer to test on all platforms. So
developers depend on the test results of regression tests run by
volunteers. For example, see

If no one volunteers to run the tests for a particular platform, that
platform is not officially supported.

So if you care about Android or iOS becoming officially supported,
start running regular (preferably daily) regression tests for Boost.
