iOS authentication can be configured in two ways: APNS authentication key and APNS provider certificate.

APNS Provider Certificate

Apple Push Notification Service(APNS) is necessary for sending push notifications to your iOS app. The APNS provider certificate needs to be created and converted into the '.pem' format and uploaded to the dashboard.

For information about creating the APNS certificate and uploading it to the dashboard, refer to APNS Certificate/PEM File.

APNS Authentication Key

Authentication Key is a token-based authentication mechanism and can be used for sending notifications to all the iOS applications owned by a business. Token-based authentication is faster than certificate-based authentication and is the preferred authentication mechanism.
