Has anyone figured out how to open the Help File for iOS Scrivener? L&L offers PDF files for Mac/Win, but their content is only semi-relevant to the iOS version. For iOS, only a .zip file is available, and when I try to open it, any application I choose, including Scrivener, says File Unsupported.

There is no real help file, only an interactive tutorial. You open it inside iOS Scrivener, like any project.
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, all running the latest MacOS
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 8, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

Yeah the .zip on our page is exactly the same as the one you’ll find in Scrivener itself, at the very bottom of the master project list. We only provide the .zip for those that haven’t bought it yet and are evaluating what the software is capable of.
