iOS Push

Configure iOS Push

To configure push notifications for iOS devices:

  1. Open MoEngage Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Settings -> Channel -> Push -> Mobile Push
    The following settings are available to configure.


iOS Authentication

Configure iOS authentication through the 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. Create the APNS provider certificate and convert it into the .pem format before uploading it to the dashboard.

For information about creating the APNS certificate and uploading it to the dashboard, please take a look at APNS Certificate/PEM File.

APNS Authentication Key

Authentication Key is a token-based authentication mechanism and is used to send 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.
