Push notification for IOS user

Hi,

I’m new here and also new to Progressive Web Apps (PWA).

I’ve read in the internet that Push Notifications for IOS users are NOT possible. So Push Notifications is a very important feature and IOS market share is also very big.

So, how can I use Push Notifications for IOS users?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Best regards

Albert

Today the way to do it is with web push notifications. This is going to require a significant investment in custom code to build. I have never actually built something with these apis but I think it’s reasonable to assume that they would work fine with a Softr PWA.

You will also need a back end server for these apis to talk to. I don’t know if Zapier or Make can be that server but that would be the easiest approach.

But right now web push notifications to a PWA for IOS users are NOT possible.

“Apple announced support for web push notifications for Safari on iOS starting in 2023. At the company’s annual developer event WWDC in June 2022, Apple announced that this feature was coming to iOS.”

Sorry, you’re right – I missed that in the docs. I still don’t see any other way to do push notifications with Softr on Safari for iOS, besides waiting for iOS Safari to support it.

Thanks dcoletta!
