Learn how to use Apple's new User Notifications framework to deliver notifications to a user. This video focuses on initial setup and notification posting.
- [Instructor] In this lesson,…we're going to discuss the scheduling…and handling of local notifications.…Our objective here will be to determine…whether or not a notification has been fired off…for a given Beacon…and if not,…we will schedule one accordingly.…If it already has been fired,…then we'll just ignore the detected Beacon…as we don't want to continue to spam users…with repeated notifications…as they enter or exit our Beacon region.…As of iOS 10,…we have a new framework and API for notifications…called user notifications.…
This new framework in short…provides a unified point of interaction…that works across iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.…While won't we go into depth on the subject here,…we will use the framework in its basic form…to deliver local notifications…to our users once a Beacon has been detected.…So in our BeaconManager class,…let's go ahead and import the user notification framework.…To track if we've sent the notification or not,…we'll be setting up and updating a dictionary value…that's stored to user defaults.…
