WebViewController *DashBoard = [[WebViewController alloc]initWithNibName:@"WebViewController" bundle:nil];

[self.navcntrl pushViewController:DashBoard animated:YES];

The push notification payload consists of:

alert - the alert string and actions




The key content-available is a new feature, and it is this key that makes silent push possible.

To enable, you also have to add remote-notifcation as your app UIBackgroundModes as described here.

This is what happens when content-available is in the payload:

If app is Suspended, the system will bring it into Background

If app was killed by user, nothing happens and app remains in Not Running Read about app state changes.

A potential is pitfall:

You enable with content-available=1. But, it is WRONG to disable with content-available=0. To disable, you have to REMOVE the key in the payload.

plz use this

-(void)application:(UIApplication *)application didReceiveRemoteNotification:(NSDictionary *)userInfo fetchCompletionHandler:(void (^)(UIBackgroundFetchResult))completionHandler
       if(application.applicationState == UIApplicationStateInactive) 

       //do your things when you click on notification
    else if (application.applicationState == UIApplicationStateBackground)


      else if (application.applicationState == UIApplicationStateActive)
