[Ovmsdev] Apple push notifications no longer working

Push notifications are still working ok for me. What is the error you get back from the gateway?

We are using this protocol (see apns_send function):

https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/BinaryProviderAPI.html <https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/BinaryProviderAPI.html>

We need to convert to this one:

https://developer.apple.com/documentation/usernotifications/setting_up_a_remote_notification_server/sending_notification_requests_to_apns/ <https://developer.apple.com/documentation/usernotifications/setting_up_a_remote_notification_server/sending_notification_requests_to_apns/>

But have until the end of March 2021 to do it. The switch is not complex, and is probably slightly easier for us. It becomes just a simple http request, with pretty much the same payload we currently use (in json format).

Regards, Mark.
