QNetworkAccessManager on iOS?

  • I'm writting an iPhone app that uses QNetworkAccessManager to download some images from the internet. The following code works on the desktop : The file is downloaded and a list of several configurations are displayed. However on the iPhone no network configurations are found and the file is not downloaded. networkAccessible() returns NotAccessible.

    How can I make QNetworkAccessManager work on iOS? Are there any libs/capabilities that I have to include/activate in my .pro file? Any special configuration from the side of XCode?

    According to https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,69298 there should be a NSUrlConnection backend available for iOS but I can't find any instructions on setting it up.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    @void main() {
    QCoreApplication app;
    // only one nam instance in my app
    QNetworkAccessManager* nam = new QNetworkAccessManager();
    connect (nam, SIGNAL(finished(QNetworkReply*)), receiver, SLOT(onFinished(QNetworkReply*)));



    // this is called from inside the event loop
    void fetch() {
    foreach (QNetworkConfiguration config, nam->allConfigurations()) {
    qDebug() << config.name();

    QUrl url("http://..../A.png");


    // this is the receiver's slot
    void onFinished(QNetworkReply* reply) {

  • You can try Qt examples involving QNetworkAccessManager.

    By the way, please check the network connection of your iOS device.

  • Thanks for your quick answer. Problem solved. There was nothing wrong with the code of course. I simply had to enable the network link conditioner in the Developer menu of my iPhone. Thanks for pointing that out.

    QNetworkAccessManager works like a charm on iOS !
