Expiring Apple Certificates

Expiring Apple Certificates

Merchants who have launched a mobile app will periodically receive an email from Apple notifying them that one of the following certificates will no longer be valid in 30 days.
  1. Apple Push Notification Service Certificate- You can no longer send push notifications to your app.
  2. iOS Distribution Certificate (App Store)- If your Apple Developer Program membership is valid, your existing apps on the App Store won't be affected. However, you'll no longer be able to upload new apps or updates signed with the expired or revoked certificate to the App Store.
If received, there is no action required on your end. The City Hive development team is also notified of the expiring certificate and will take the necessary actions to make sure your app stays up to date.
