I believe it is due to that no HD versions exist for them unlike the other releases. The best-looking versions were made for PSP originally with a resolution of 480 x 272 pixel. On the mobile releases, it is just pixelated upscale, would look worse on a larger screen such as on PC. They have to build a new version with HD on mind. Considering these are 2D sprites, it is not possible to HD remaster them, they have to draw new larger sprites.

I hope they port a modified version of the iOS/Android versions of those games if they do actually bring them to PC because the PS1 ports were some of the worst optimized ports ever made. I'd prefer the GBA port but we can't win them all.

The iOS version is an HD version of the PSP version.

All main FFs besides 1 and 2 are on Steam (or will be soon, a la FFXII and FFXV).
Play games, not companies.

They don't have the original FF 3 or 4, just the DS remakes. The original FF 4 is still worth playing. OG FF 3 is a bit rough.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

Hmm, probably region lock for me, cause I don't see FF3,4,5 and 6 in my steam search
