I'm taking a wild guess as to the criteria. One would be cost. Android can be cheaper. Another issue is if the device makes the missionary a target for theft. I'd think an iPhone would increase that risk.

Making live "nice" for the developers probably isn't a factor. Not unless the labor hours saved gets close to the cost savings on all the deployed devices.

Curious if the missionary phone app is still not supported with Android version 10. I see here from this older post that earlier in 2020 it was not?

That question should be directed to her future mission president.

No, it has to be a Samsung approved phone that is unlocked for any network.

What are the latest phone specs that are needed? How do you get ahold of the missionary support department?

Information on missionary phones is available in the Missionary Portal. See https://missionary.churchofjesuschrist.org/portal/acquire-a-missionary-smartphone?lang=eng.
