Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

Apple Push Notification services (APNs) is a service by Apple that handles the communication between Apple devices and third-party services. For Hexnode to communicate with the device, the Hexnode server will at first send a notification to the APNs server, which in-turn will communicate to the device. The APNs acts as the gateway between the device and Hexnode. Thus, the APNs certificate is a must for the communication between the device and Hexnode.
