No. (Not *your* source code, anyway. Consult a lawyer w.r.t. to your
obligations to distribute *Qt's* source code.)

Possibly. The "issue" with LGPL as I understand it is that you are
required to make it possible for users of your app to replace the Qt
that you shipped with their own Qt (i.e. and have your app run using
their Qt). Depending on how you distribute (e.g. do you use Play Store?
Can users download and manually install packages?), this *MIGHT* be
possible on Android, but my understanding is that it is *NOT* possible
on iOS due to restrictions running your own software on the devices.

Mind... IANAL. The above does not constitute legal advice.
