First Look at Editorial 1.1
So, as of now, if things go as planned, are you planning to release 1.1 and the iPhone version at the same time? Or is it too early to tell?
Yes, that's the plan.

Ole, thanks for the update on the status of Editorial. I understand this isn't something you can comment on in the absolute but do you see this next iteration of Editorial being released in the 0-3 month period or the 3-6 month?
For my money the developments look exciting and overall it feels like more of a V2 release than a point upgrade. The business decisions are yours to make but it's my belief that if the application is fundamentally the same experience across both iPhone and iPad it should be an aptly priced universal App but if you've had to customise the user experience to each platform then it is fair to price them individually. Fantastical 2 is a great example here of a company that provides great value even though each IOS platform is an individual purchase. But there are a number of text editors on the market that provide iPad and IOS Apps that are fundamentally the same but still charge a seperate fee for each. These always feel like a company milking it's customer base.

Definitely 0-3 months.

The overall UI isn't radically different on the iPhone, but there are a lot of little details I had to tweak to make it work on a smaller screen, especially in the workflow editor.
Though I tend to favor universal apps as well, you could also make the argument that users who only own one device would pay for something they don't need... Of course, there are examples of apps where porting it to a different screen size is trivial (e.g. most games), but that's really not the case here.
Still, I've made Pythonista universal (it was initially iPad-only as well), and it's quite likely that I'll go the same route here.

Have you considered naming both of the new versions 2.0.0? That way, Pythonista and Editorial would be matched in version number and it would be obvious that the APIs should be similar.
Just a thought.

Wow! I'm impressed! As someone who normally lives in Vim (and MacVim) on Mac/Linux systems (with the full power of the command line & scripts for filtering available), Editorial is like a godsend, being able to write Python tweaks/filters for text editing on iOS. And having an iPhone version is going to greatly simplify some things for me, not having to make do with lesser apps on the smaller device.
At the risk of delaying things further, this seems like a large enough milestone that you could quite reasonably rename them to Editorial2, Pythonista2, charge anew for them (as universal apps), and use the occasion to switch over to Python 3.x. Sort of make a clean break all around. Keep up maintenance/bugfixes on the 1.x versions (if needed), since they both work well on iOS 7 (and folks can stay with them if they're happy), but have all new work/features/etc going into the new v2 versions.
Either way, there's a bunch of folks who'd cheerfully use a "buy Ole a drink" IAP button, or, if Apple won't allow that, maybe a bonus/premium button that gives us some themes or whatnot in return. I understand a title of the "what price will fly" dilemma, but you I think you should get more money for Pythonista and Editorial.
Take all the time you need. ("As long as I can have it tomorrow" Ha! *anxiously waiting*...)
Quick status update: I've just submitted Editorial 1.1 to Apple for review. \o/

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

If you're interested in all the details, here are the full (pre-)release notes for 1.1:
TaskPaper, TextExpander, contacts, oh my!
iPhone, sub-workflows, and so much more.
I'll be able to complete workflows for all my Schedule-Diary-System needs now;
Out of the Park, omz.

Oh mid-year Xmas has come!
Completely lost track how many times I've checked back on this forum post for updates on release (I'm sure your analytics knows!)
So very grateful and excited to dig in to this, thank you Ole!

A good thing is worth waiting for.

Anyone have an idea how long a typical wait is before Apple approves an update?
Looks good Ole! Way to go!
