    [Export("application:didReceiveRemoteNotification:fetchCompletionHandler:")] public override void DidReceiveRemoteNotification(UIApplication application, NSDictionary userInfo, Action<UIBackgroundFetchResult> completionHandler) { if (UIApplication.SharedApplication.ApplicationState.Equals(UIApplicationState.Active)) { BeginInvokeOnMainThread(async () => { UIAlertController okayAlertController = UIAlertController.Create(“Alert Header”, message, UIAlertControllerStyle.Alert); okayAlertController.AddAction(UIAlertAction.Create(“OK”, UIAlertActionStyle.Default, (obj) => { // Your logic })); NavigationController.PresentViewController(okayAlertController, true, null); }); } }

    You can call completionHandler(UNNotificationPresentationOptions.Alert | UNNotificationPresentationOptions.Sound | UNNotificationPresentationOptions.Badge);

    in userNotificationCenter:(UNUserNotificationCenter* )center willPresentNotification

    Default is UNNotificationPresentationOptions.None when on foreground which usually is normal because you don't want to show a push notif in when the app is in foreground unless your app requires it.

    Hello Everyone,
    Please check my code. This is working when apps in background or kill state. In my code else part is working for APNS push notification using apple apns certificate but I want same push notification when app in foreground for upcoming message in another group or chat. I don't want a popup notification. I want a notification in notification center like whatsapp. Please help.

                                           new NSSet());
