Apple APNs Push Notification setup manual


Create and configure the authentication key

This section describes how to generate an authentication key for an App ID enabled for Push Notifications. If you have an existing key, you can use that key instead of generating a new one.

To create an authentication key:

  1. In your Apple Developer Member Center, go to Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, and select Keys.
  2. Click the Add button (+) or click the “Create a key” button.
