Push-notifications on iOS

Apple Push Notification service (APNs) is responsible for sending of notifications on iOS.

Transferring of Push-notifications is controlled by Apple. Problems come up in connection with weak or unstable signal. Also the reason could be that a power saving mode is enabled.

In order to solve the problem, make sure that:

1.Your iOS version is the latest.

2.JivoChat application has the latest update from AppStore (TestFlight for the beta-tester)

3.Set the sound to an appropriate level. (Silent mode should be disabled)

4.Check next settings for the JivoChat app:
