Qt for iOS - Building from Source

Building Qt for iOS from sources requires Xcode with command-line tools installed. This can be done within Xcode from Preferences > Downloads > Components > Command Line Tools.

Qt 5 sources can be obtained either by cloning the repositories or downloading the source package(s).

We can then configure and build Qt. This is done from the Qt 5 top directory:

> ./configure -xplatform macx-ios-clang -release

For other configure options, see Qt Configure Options.

Then, simply run make.

Note: A default build will include both simulator and device libraries. If you want to build for a single target, use the -sdk argument with either iphoneos or iphonesimulator.
