How to send an iOS background push

This article refers to iOS 7 and greater. Please note that you will need to make changes to your application code to take advantage of this functionality. See the documentation on Background Push for more details.

 
Background pushes can be sent to trigger the app to perform some action while the app is in the background. Here an example payload that you can use with our push API v3 to take advantage of this functionality:

 

Background push, conserve battery (priority 5):

{
 "audience": "all",
   "notification": {
       "ios": {
            "content-available": true,
            "priority": 5
​       }
   },
   "device_types": ["ios"]
}
