I would modify this request: Just automatically adjust the wrap to the existing screen. Of course this depends on the font, landscape or portrait and displayed sidebar or not.
There are a few things to consider here: You can use the pinch-to-zoom gesture to zoom out of the editor and quickly skim over the text. I don't want to fit the editor to the screen when doing that.

When you use a large font size, horizontal scrolling is probably what you want because otherwise it would wrap after just a few words.

I like to have a fixed word wrap position when coding to see when my lines are getting too long. (Guess I used a certain IDE too long where there is a vertical gray line at position 80 that reminds you to do a line break)

But I agree, this could be an editor option. I would probably have to disable zooming in this mode.
I would like to turn off word wrap all together. I would like to choose where to wrap with a carriage return.
For the moment, you can enter a very high wrap column value in Textastic's settings.
