For configuration objects created using the
background method, you can use this property to control the launching behavior for an iOS app. This property is ignored for configuration objects created using other methods.
The default value of this property is
YES. When the value of this property is
YES, the system automatically wakes up or launches the iOS app in the background when the session’s tasks finish or require authentication. At that time, the system calls the app delegate’s
application: method, providing it with the identifier of the session that needs attention. If your app had to be relaunched, you can use that identifier to create a new configuration and session object capable of servicing the tasks.
