Regard QtWebkit on iOS:

Source http://qt-project.org/qt5/qt52#ios

"Qt WebKit is also not supported under Qt for iOS and because of App Store policies, it will not be supported either. For now, you need to use the native WebKit in iOS. This can be done by using the native Objective-C libraries, which is possible with the iOS compiler, clang.”

So even in the case of QtWebEngine its unlikely that we will ever be able to support iOS.  Even in the case of the Chrome browser app on iOS they are using the native web view instead of their own WebEngine to comply with the same App Store policies.

As to the first two issues, from what I read online, it is because of
QtWebkit, which I have to use in my app. Is there any hope we could get
these fixed?

Correct, all of them come from QtWebKit.

Anyway, there's no plan on further updating QtWebKit from upstream because
upstream WebKit is no longer cross-platform.

I have no clue about the bootstrap symbols, but all of the ICU symbols are
documented to be stable in icu-project.org<http://icu-project.org> and have been for some time.
