Setting up APNS with Apple
Before setting up Apple Push Notifications with PubNub, there are a couple steps Apple-specific steps you’ll have to complete first. In the two demo videos below, we’ll walk you through creating the App ID and PEM Certificate File, and then, the provisioning file.
In Video One below, we’ll navigate around the Apple Developer Portal, first registering an App ID and setting up Apple Push. Then we’ll create the certificate for APNS.
In Video Two, we’ll create our provisioning profile.
That’s it! In our next installment, we’ll show you how to setup APNS with PubNub using these prerequisite steps.
