Since the release of Safari 7.0.3 Apple finally gives us an option to turn off safari notification prompts. To disable safari notifications go to Preferences within Safari. Click the Websites tab (notifications tab for older versions of safari) and uncheck "Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications". And voilà. Websites panel for ...

I figured out that I needed to enter the following in the terminal: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.apsd.plist I did this already, and it seemed to fix the issue, but would love to know if this is the advisable way to solve the problem. ======================================================== Also, in case you want to ...

If you setup your Gmail account as IMAP, it is not pushed. If you setup your Gmail account as an Exchange account, then it will be. The instructions on how to do this are found on this page. Hope this helps.

You're talking about the notification settings for Mail, not whether push is on. To see new mail messages in the Lock Screen: Settings > Notifications > Mail > Make sure "View in Lock Screen" is turned ON. If you're concerned about your mail's push settings, those are in: Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Fetch New Data > Make sure "Push" is set how ...

It is a server used for push notifications for iOS and OS X. If you block it, you may not receive push notifications.

You need to turn all 5 setting off for that app in Settings ->Notifications Turning Notification Center off only removes that app from the Notification Center (swipe down from the top of the screen). It doesn't turn off alerts, badges, sounds or the lock screen.

Gmail doesn't offer IMAP push for iOS (IMAP idle isn't supported by iOS Mail), but Google Sync (which actually uses MS exchange mobile protocol) which doesn't only push your mails but also syncs your contacts and calendars (if you wish to). As of Janury 30, 2013, Google terminated Active Sync support for free users.

To answer the question, you'll need to understand how Apple's push notification service works. Every application that wants to use push notifications must register with the Apple Push Notification Service (APNS). Typically, this is done right after installation. iOS asks the user if the app is allowed to receive push notifications. If the user agrees, his ...

Apparently, Push Notifications Permission are reset if the devices are restored or the app is uninstalled for a day. Extracted from Apple's Technical Note: The first time a push-enabled app registers for push notifications, iOS asks the user if they wish to receive notifications for that app. Once the user has responded to this alert it is not presented ...

Had a similar problem in python, I guess the underlying ssl libraries are the same so the solution might be similar. SSL3_WRITE_PENDING seems to be caused when a socket write fails then you try to write again. In this case for whatever reason SSL_write requires you to retry the write with the exact same bytes as the original write or else it omits the ...

As far as I know, not with the stock options. You may be able to do this on a jailbroken phone if there's a jailbreak community app for that. Short of that, you'd have to make one yourself. Otherwise, you're down to changing these settings manually when you're away from WiFi.

Safari's reading list and iCloud works well to synchronize a list of URL between Macs and iOS devices. The Simplenote app and web app work well to let all your devices keep track of text documents. You only need to pay for the latter if you want enhanced features or avoid the advertisements that are minimal and generally very tasteful.

Little Snitch is a means to solve this problem. It doesn't answer the original question (which is how to disable apsd from running), but it can solve this sort of problem, albeit in a bandaid way, that the author of the question has. With Little Snitch in place it's one button click solution to never hear from apsd again...

Since Testflight has been integrated in the App Store / iTunes Connect, you'll need to upload it to iTunes Connect, which means you need an App Store provisioning profile, not an Ad-Hoc one. I can imagine that older tutorials, made when Testflight was a stand-alone platform, still describe the situation were an Ad-Hoc provisioning profile was necessary. As ...

It depends on the service that sent the notification in the first place. The service (i.e. the backend system that supports an app such as Facebook or any other app) sends their notifications to Apple's push notification service over a HTTP/2-based API. In that API it sets a parameter known as "apns-expiration", which determines how long time Apple's push ...

Push notifications don't work in the simulator. You have to use a physical iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. Good luck, Mark

Go to Settings > Mails, ... > Fetch New Data > Advanced From there, you can chose how to get new email from each account. It could be push, fetch (every X minutes) or manual (only when you open the app)

You can do this with MailMinder on an iPhone. Just set up a Source of Gmail with the folder set to the Priority Inbox, then set up a Minder with a Subject of ... This will match any message that has a subject with 3 characters. I know the developer is planning to have a button to match anything in the next release. Mail Minder has a free mode if you don't ...

The proposed answer of chmod 000 RemoteNotifications does work, but unfortunately console is spewed with many failed attempts to access files in the directory. The messages are all being logged by a process called SafariNotificationAgent which appears to be the single source of grief. This process can be stopped entirely using: launchctl remove com.apple....

Yes - Apple's find my iPhone app / service will sound the device despite mute, volume and do-not-disturb settings.

You are experiencing something most of us do – the Facebook push notification server is notoriously unreliable. See this Daily Buggle article for both confirmation and a possible workaround using Boxcar.

In iOS 6, I changed my Google accounts setup from Exchange to IMAP to test them, and I think they're not compatible with Push. If you go to "Settings", and then to "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" inside iOS, you can go to "Fetch new data" to enable Push, but, if you go to "Advanced" (within "Fetch new data"), you can see, one by one, how iOS will get mail from ...

The original question (asked by Jordan, I believe) has a comment that indicates there may be confusion between Push Notifications and Email Notifications. He mentioned not wanting to get so many email messages about activity in his apps. All of these answers are just for Push Notifications (which are pop-ups on your device), but even if you manage to turn ...

As of iOS 7, you can disable mobile data on a per-app basis. If you are almost never in a place without Wi-Fi access, you could disable mobile data for the Mail app. However, you will then only be able to receive new mail when you have Wi-Fi access. To do this, go to Mobile Data under Settings and scroll down. Each app is listed along with how much mobile ...

There is no way to do this in iOS. For a workaround you could turn off 3G and turn it on when you need it, just before you open up Mail, that way when you are connected to WiFi you will get push, but manually have to get from 3G. It's not a great situation: I would just increase your data cap, although I know that is not always easy, hence you asking for ...

Yes Yahoo mail supports push, but failing sometimes. This is how to enable it: Go to "Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars" Tap "Fetch New Data" Slide "Push" to ON (you can select Fetch period whatever you like) Also from "Fetch New Data" page, tap "Advanced" and see that Yahoo! mail account has Push text on the right It is easy to do, but sometimes Yahoo ...
