Push notifications in a mobile app for iOS

To configure and enable push notifications for iOS apps, use the Apple Developer Portal to create and obtain mobile provisioning and push notifications (APNs) certificate files.

An Apple Push Notification service (APNs) certificate is required when using push notifications to send push messages from the server to an iOS mobile device. For more information about generating an APNs certificate, go to the iOS Developer Library.
Save the single private key and a single APNs certificate in a .p12 file so that it can be uploaded to the certificate set for the iOS app that you are creating. For more information, see Configuring push notifications on iOS.

  • Engaging mobile users with push notifications

    Improve user engagement and experience in your mobile app with automatic push notifications about meaningful events in your business processes. For example, you can use push notifications to notify the users that they must perform an action in a case, such as approve or reject an expense request.

  • Configuring push notifications on iOS

    You configure the push notifications for the iOS mobile app in a new certificate set that contains mobile provisioning with push notifications enabled. You must upload a .p12 file containing an Apple Push Notification service (APNs) certificate used for push notifications. After you configure the options described in the following procedure, push notifications will be enabled for the iOS mobile app.
