Silent push notifications

Silent push notifications improve the user experience by giving you a way to wake up your app periodically so that it can refresh its data in the background.

To enable silent push in your Xcode project:

  1. In the Project Navigator, select your project.

  2. In the editor, select your iOS app target.

  3. Select the Capabilities tab.

  4. Enable the Background Modes capability.

  5. Enable the Remote notifications background mode. 

To enable silent push on the Accengage dashboard, tick the content available checkbox when configuring your push message.

Please bare in mind that APNs treats silent push notifications as low priority and may throttle their delivery altogether if the total number becomes excessive. The actual limits are dynamic and can change based on conditions, but try not to send more than a few notifications per hour.
