Dear Marc,
I can say what works for me:

Qt-5.4.2 at:

a) 10.10.4 and Xcode-6.4

b) 10.9.2 and Xcode-6.2

Configuring and compiling separately for iphoneos and for
iphonesimulator targets:

xplatform macx-ios-clang -sdk <target>

There are several people on the list using 5.5.0 with some patches, my guess,
but I'm failing to find a reason to go 5.5 in meanwhile.

Take care,

Kind regards,
