Building Qt 5.5. apps for iOS 9?

  • I have previously been running my Qt 5 application on iOS 8 without any problems, but after upgrading to XCode 7 and iOS 9 I can't even compile the app for iOS anymore. After upgrading XCode to version 7 I found that I needed to specify the Mac OS SDK version in my .pro file like so QMAKE_MAC_SDK = macosx10.11. That worked perfectly for building the application for Mac OS, but when I try to build for iOS I get the following message:

    Current macosx10.11 SDK version (10.11) is too old. Please upgrade Xcode.

    I obviously can't upgrade XCode since that I was I just did :-) I'm guessing my best bet is to find a way to "downgrade" my XCode and Mac OS SDKs, but that would mean waving goodbye to iOS 9 support for now...

    Does anybody know how I can get it to work on iOS 9?

    Best regards,

  • Hello,

    I had the same issue.
    I modified my .pro with this two lines :

    @ osx: QMAKE_MAC_SDK = macosx10.11
    ios: QMAKE_MAC_SDK = iphoneos9.1

    This works for me, and I didn't change Qt5.5.1 settings.
    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards, Fabien.
