Why does it show that my user agent is something other than my iPhone?

Going to the page from my iPhone in Safari, I get the following User Agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1
Going to the page from my iPhone in Chrome, I get the following User Agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/604.1.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) CriOS/66.0.3359.122 Mobile/15E302 Safari/604.1
Going to the page from my iPhone in FireFox, I get the following User Agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) FxiOS/11.1b10377 Mobile/15E302 Safari/605.1.15
These are the top three browsers for the iPhone and our User Agent tool detects iPhone in each one. The thing about a User Agent is that it can be manipulated if you know what you're doing.
What browser are you using on your iPhone and what does our User Agent Info tool detect?
