More explicit control of how push notifications are sent over via the Apple API.
We have updated the APNS2 feature to support:
Explicit specification of Push type, e.g. set apns-push-type to background versus alert versus voip, etc. (full Apple spec is here https://developer.apple.com/documentation/usernotifications/setting_up_a_remote_notification_server/sending_notification_requests_to_apns/)
Relaxation of the rules associated with Apple’s treatment of content-available property (you can read more about that at the same line). There was plenty of chatter out there around the ambiguous statements from Apple around what to do here and we have decided to take a path where we allow customers to construct push payloads that confirm to the yet-to-be-enforced rules, thereby ensuring no issues if and when Apple chooses to enforce the validation that they claim is in place, or to continue without changing, and deciding to do migration to the valid Apple-mandated payload at some point in the future.
