Handling Push Notifications in the app

Hello there, I am a neophyte iOS developer and I am still learning to build iOS apps. My questions is, how to handle push notifications sent by a third party software (Eg: Firebase) ? My question can further be split into to two parts. Part one is how to handle the notification to open a particular view when the app is in foreground? And second part is similar to the first part but the only difference is handling the notification, when the app is in background? I have read couple to articles to handle push notifications but none of it really provided reasonable solutions to my app. I am curious to know about the life cycle of the app as well, because it has to be understood carefully for implementing background notification handling. Hence it is a request to all the experienced iOS developers to help me understand handling notifications. Thanks.

Covid-19 apps, BLE and iOS 13.5 restriction

There are covid-19 apps restricted to BLE and iOS 13.5 and above only. There are so many iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 etc. still in circulation (they won't allow installing iOS 13.5), therefore I wish to know where exactly this restriction takes place. 1) Does iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 have technology that would allow a covid-19 app based on nearby Bluetooth devices work? 2) Exposure Notifications is supported on iOS 13.5 and above only. What is this restriction based on (hardware features or something else)? 3) Would it be theoretically possible to add Exposure Notifications to iOS version supported by iPhone 5s and iPhone 6?

Alberta (Canada) currently has 2 competing COVID-19 Apps, an extremely un-useful standoff...

The 2 apps are: ABTraceTogether (promoted by Alberta provincial gov) COVID Alert (Canada-wide, promoted by Federal gov) Only (Federal) COVID Alert uses the Apple/Google Exposure Notification API. ABTraceTogether uses OpenTrace. Currently (1.4.0) release notes claim OpenTrace runs in background, but as far as I can tell it does not do so reliably nor without draining iPhone battery. This is based on Australian news texting app with same framework. If anyone wants to run ABTraceTogether in Alberta (and I do) that's great for them. But I'd like try understand a few things to try help enable COVID Alert in Alberta. Currently COVID Alert (in Alberta) is not being supplied with one-time keys. Apparently this is due to Alberta provincial gov insisting we use ABTraceTogether instead of COVID Alert. That is, our provincial gov in insisting we use an OpenTrace app instead of the federal one using the Google/Apple Exposure Notification API. My questions: There is no limitation keeping Alberta from supplying one-time-keys to COVID Alert, while also continuing to promote ABTraceTogether, correct? I mean both apps can be downloaded and run in Alberta already. Can the Canadian gov see install stats per-province? My own (personal app project) stats only show Canadian installs, and NOT provincial. If the feds could make the case more people in Alberta installed the federal app than the provincial one, that might help encourage Alberta gov to support the federal app. Can/should Apple reject the provincial app? If no one is using it, and it can never work properly on iPhones, there are ultimately lives at stake in my home province and my home city. I'm not sure what to do here, and I'm in no way personally involved in either app. We just have a situation in Alberta where C-19 spread is accelerating, and this COVID App showdown between provincial and federal government has been dragging on since May. If anyone in any country has seen a similar deadlock, and insight in how to help resolve it, please share any ideas. Or, any frank assessment of OpenTrace. Maybe it is worth supporting, and we simply need to give-up on ever seeing a "proper" EN-API app here?

Activate Exposure Notifications for 2 apps

I downloaded the UK and DE corona tracker apps and thought, I could use them parallel. But this is not possible, I have to chose, which app is allowed to use the data and there is no exchange between the apps like in the transnational exposure logging. Why is it not possible, to have to apps connected to the exposure notifications. Especially when traveling this would be great so you can exchange codes with people from different countries and in case of an infection users of both apps can be notified. thanks irene

BLE Central is not scanning near by peripheral when device is locked and screen is off

I’m developing internal application using BLE. Here my app acts as both Central and Peripheral. When device is locked and screen is off, BLE central is unable to discover advertisement of the device which is locked and screen is off. The same advertisement will be discovered when device is locked and screen light in on. How to overcome this issue. Is it possible to discover those advertisement? Apple introduced Exposure Notification API recently and It is only available for Government Health Authorities. As Exposure Notification API is also using BLE, How the above case is handled in it? Thanks in advance for your help EsakkiRaja
