I am implementing keyboard shortcuts into a iOS app.
Some of the shortcuts I currently have:
Switching tabs: ⌘ + 1,2,3,4
Adding items: ⌘ + N
Search: ⌘ + F
Should I add a shortcut that enables the "Edit" button? If so, what should it be?

Assuming you are making an app for an iPhone, I would not have a keyboard short cut for edit, this adds in unnecessary steps as the keyboard is generally hidden inside an app so you are asking your user to bring up the keyboard and press key combinations. Whereas the edit button on the app is just one tap and is quick enough as it is.
If you are making an app for use of an iMac or Macbook etc, there are not any default setting that I can see that are already in use.
