Join Steven Lipton for an in-depth discussion in this video APNs and remote notifications, part of iOS and watchOS App Development: Notifications.
- [Narrator] So far, we've been working with…local notifications which tell us about…events that happen on the device.…There's another type of notification…that comes from a server and the device acts as a client.…These are notifications referred to as…either remote or push notifications.…In push notifications allow the local notification code…is unnecessary because it's happening somewhere…other than the users device.…There's a server somewhere which contains the content,…that server will push the content…toward the users device, acting as a trigger.…
Between a users device and the server…is Apple Push Notification Service, or APNS.…APNS takes the servers data, often referred to as a payload,…checks if the data is from a legitimate source…and sends a payload from APNS to a specific device…registered to receive the push notification.…APNSs main job is to coordinate security and device identity…To make this happen, APNS uses two special pieces,…a certificate key and a token.…
