Because the APIs are deprecated by Apple so they would have had to be removed/changed soon anyways, especially when an alternative (which is the default now) is already available. Also it caused build failure on tvOS/watchOS.

The changelog contains this entry:

- [QTBUG-45031] The NSURLConnection backend of QNetworkAccessManager has
  been removed, since SecureTransport is the default SSL backend on iOS
  and is enabled by default. This means that building with -no-openssl
  -no-securetransport will no longer provide SSL capabilities on iOS.

WTH? Why are we removing options in a patch release? What happened?

Is the backend so severely broken that it needed to be removed?
