This is a platform-specific functionality and as such not a candidate for being supported by a cross-platform API.

Maybe it will make it into an "OS specific module" of Qt?

(Such platform-specific modules do exist, e.g. for Windows, X11 and OS X - maybe iOS/Android, too?)

The good news is that for the time being you can call this platform-specific API yourself! It is very easy to combine Obj-C++ with C++ -> Google is your friend ;)

Just after you have created the Q(Gui)ApplicationObject in main() I guess (or whatever suitable "init" place exist for QtQuick-based applications).
