There is support for Android development in Qt 6. With Qt Creator, you can connect to devices, develop, test, and package Android applications.

The following configurations are supported in this Qt release:

Note: It's recommended that Qt user apps use the same NDK r25b version used for building these official Qt for Android libraries. An NDK version more recent than r23b is required if building a project results in an error of missing the symbols for __emutls_get_address.


There is support for developing Qt applications for Apple iPad and iPhone, via Qt for iOS. Qt Creator supplements Xcode for development and deployment.

Tools for Mobile Development

Qt Creator is the IDE for Qt development. Qt Creator creates project files, test and debug code, and connects to mobile devices. For Android, Qt Creator can sign and package APK files, ready for publishing to Google Play. Xcode is necessary for development on Apple platforms and Qt Creator can create project files and connect to Apple devices for testing.

Design Tools for Mobile

Design tools aid UI development by allowing designers to create layouts and animation that can be converted into Qt compatible formats. 2D and 3D assets created from design software can be integrated into Qt applications.
