Background service running every minute even if the app closed

MikilllMikilll Member ✭✭✭

Hey, is it possible in Xamarin.iOS to create a background service which is running every minute even if the app is closed? I need such a service to fetch a value from a database and show a notification if the value is greater than a threshold.

    Basically there is no such thing as a service type app or functionality in iOS. Even the "background" apps (UIBackgroundMode) cannot run entirely freely and without restrictions like a service or daemon etc. on other OSs can.
