This is not an appropriate question for webkit-dev as it is not a question about the development of WebKit.

A good place to get answers about this are in the iOS Dev Center and Safari Dev Center.

Generally speaking, media playback on webpages has to be user-initiated in iOS. This is covered in various Apple documentation, such as Safari HTML5 Audio and Video Guide, but typically that concentrates on the <audio> element rather than directly loading a wav file.

But please don’t ask followup questions about this on this mailing list, since it’s off topic for the list.
