The Qt port in 5.1 is very initial - don't even try to work with it.

Instead, take the latest 5.4.2

Whatever the declared support in the docs is,
the real support is starting from iOS-8
since Qt-team as per my knowledge seen in bug reports
has only iOS-8 in their labs and not even iOS-7.

Many iPads, though, have iOS-7. Qt still works with iOS-7 at least
with widgets, but test thoroughly.

You will miss iPad-1 with Qt-5.4.2, but this is a really small market.

Note, that iPad-2, two difference HW-editions, has only 512 MB of RAM,
and it is a good case to test the memory efficiency of your app.
