iOS Push Notification Certificate Expiry



If we get the email from Apple “Action Needed: Apple Push Services Certificate Expires in 30 Days”, is there anything we need to do with production apps? I assume we don’t need to rebuild and release another app, but do we need to upload a new certificate to the Expo push service so that it can continue sending pushes to the app?


Your iOS Distribution Certificate will no longer be valid in 30 days.

You’ll need to clear your certificates with “exp build:ios -c” and then let Expo generate new ones (preferred, since it takes care of choosing the right certificate type for production) or uploading your own.



Can you clarify, please, what happens if you do nothing? Does Expo’s push service continue to work to old apps built one year ago? I read somewhere that you need to at least replace the certificate on the push server, but you don’t need to build a new app.
