How do you 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.

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


Background push, conserve battery (priority 5):

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