Push notification support in IOS

Does Push notification support in IOS?

No browser on iOS supports web push notifications, not even Safari. This is still a WIP. Safari did start supporting PWAs on iOS but without push notifications. 

For Firebase we need unique APNs device token, this token allows you to target notification messages to this particular instance of the app.
In IOS PWA not able to get token for a particular device browser, so not identify the proper device to send the message.

More details about Firebase

It provides several features divided into three groups developgrow and earn and all of them connected to Analytics. It doesn’t matter which feature you are using, you’ll get Analytics free.

Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM)

  • Cloud Messaging is one of the free cool features of Firebase. It’s easy to fire push notifications from server to FCM and it handles the rest for iOS, Android and Web.
  • Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) provides a reliable and battery-efficient connection between your server and devices that allows you to deliver and receive messages and notifications on iOS, Android, and the web at no cost.
