Push Notifications: iPod Touch issues

Posted on Thursday June 25th, 2009 / 06:25

Ο Dominik Balogh της PoweryBase ( η εταιρεία η οποία ανάπτυξε το Notify) απαντάει σε ερώτηματα χρηστών και αποκαλύπτει ότι τα Push Notification services δεν λειτουργούν όπως θα έπρεπε στο iPod Touch:

…The issue with iPod touch is that it’s not always connected to the internet. Even if you are connected to some WiFi access point constantly or most of the time (work, home…), iPod touch does not communicate with Apple Push Notifications Service when locked or asleep.

WiFi chips are more battery consuming than cellular network chips and Apple has decided to only check for new Push messages every 15 minutes, most probably to preserve battery power.

Documented on Apple support pages, “iPhone OS 3.0: About Apple Push Notification Service“, article HT3576:

“When the iPod touch screen is on and has a Wi-Fi connection, push notifications are received at any time. If the iPod touch screen is asleep, it will check every 15 minutes for a notification.”
