iOS: invalid certificates error for push notifications

Troubleshooting steps for iOS push notifications certificate issues

This error means that the certificates uploaded for your iOS app in Settings > App & Sites are invalid. These can be invalid for a number of reasons:

  • You could be using the incorrect type of file/cert
  • You may have uploaded a cert for a different app
  • A development cert could be in the place of the enterprise cert or vice a versa
  • The certificates could be out of date

If you encounter such an error read the iOS push notifications page and double check you have uploaded the correct certificates.
