How to clear badge number while preserving notification center

I use

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setApplicationIconBadgeNumber:0]
to clear badge number. It works fine but remote notifications are removed at the same time.

There are many other questions to clear notification center but I would NOT like to clear them. I just want to clear number of badge while preserving notifications.

Is there any way to achieve this?


One hacky way around this is to set the badge count to a negative value. Negative values aren't shown on the home screen and since they're non-zero, they don't cause the notification center to get cleared.

Try [[UIApplication sharedApplication] setApplicationIconBadgeNumber:-1] and see if it results in the user facing behavior that you want.
