Currently Digia is hard at work writing a platform plugin which they hope to 
have available for Qt5.1. That is the time-frame which they are giving for 
'official' support for iOS in Qt.

However, the current RC (at the time of writing RC2) is iOS-compatible (with 2 
small patches), and the Qt4iOS platform plugin for Qt4.8.x has been successfully 
ported to Qt5.0.0. This is a (non-Digia) commercial effort and there will most 
likely be an evaluation version of this available soon after Qt5.0.0 is released.

The Qt4iOS plugin for Qt5.0 currently supports full OpenGL, widgets & QtQuick1. 
It currently also supports multi-touch, and will most likely have sensors, 
location and multimedia (audio in/out) support available at launch.
