How to start a call from your application:

On iOS, there are two possibilities to start a phone call:

1. Start a call directly

QDesktopServices::openUrl(QUrl("tel://+123456789"));

2. Prompt the user before making the call

QDesktopServices::openUrl(QUrl("telprompt://+123456789"));

How to start a FaceTime call:

QDesktopServices::openUrl(QUrl("facetime://+123456789"));

How to send a SMS:

QDesktopServices::openUrl(QUrl("sms://+123456789"));


Setting the SMS content through this method cannot be done. This would require to use iOS API directly through Objective-C++
