Instance Property


The earliest date and time at which to run the task.


@property(copy) NSDate *earliestBeginDate;


Specify nil for no start delay.

Setting the property indicates that the background task shouldn’t start any earlier than this date. However, the system doesn’t guarantee launching the task at the specified date, but only that it won’t begin sooner.
