IOS BackgroundFetch in Qt

  • Hello,

    I am interested in making an iOS(7.0) application that can perform data fetches from the internet while in the background. How do I implement this in Qt?

    In Xcode, I would normally go to the capabilites tab for the project, select background modes -> background fetch

    Then I would go to my AppDelegate.m and add something like
    @- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
    [application setMinimumBackgroundFetchInterval:UIApplicationBackgroundFetchIntervalMinimum];

    return YES;


    And then add a delegate method

    @-(void)application:(UIApplication *)application performFetchWithCompletionHandler:(void (^)(UIBackgroundFetchResult))completionHandler{
    // We will add content here soon.

    So is it possible to implement this type of program with Qt5 and deploy to ios? I also looked at my projects simple xcodeproject that is generated when I build the iOS version. I can still go to the project and set the background mode, but I am not sure if I can just cram in an implementation somewhere of the appdelegate in that generated project. Any help is appreciated.
