It's probably because Comedy Central will censor anything at any time for any reason.

I'm going out on a limb here but... maybe the reason has to do with the full broadcast making a clear distinction between the trademarked "iPhone" and the satirical "eyePhone." When publishing this clip, we only hear Mom saying "eyePhone" which, in spoken language, is indistinguishable from the trademark.

I love Futurama too but "brilliant" satire? I'm guessing you didn't see all of the Susan "boil" parts. Ugh.
