[Interest] Qt 5.5 vs 5.4.2 for iOS and Android: Is It Worth to Upgrade?

Thank you very much to those who responded.

My apps are not using camera or video.

Since every even minor upgrade has broken something in my apps for iOS,
namely 5.3.1 -> 5.4.0, 5.4.0 -> 5.4.1, 5.4.1 -> 5.4.2 in the areas
of handling first responder/keyboard, interaction among main window
and popups/subwindows/popovers, Qt-windows with native windows, etc

I see no business case in upgrading for iOS.

At Android I've found in 5.5 one more regression:
QTBUG-47049 [REG 5.4 -> 5.5] QProgressDialog is Shown Immediately
After Allocation and Even Despite hide() Call.

It's easy to work-around, though, and the only business case
could be better support for Android-5.
Is it really the case?
Has anybody tried 5.5 with Android-5?

Once more, thank you!
You helped me.
