Push notifications on the iOS Simulator (Finally!)

If you’ve ever had to develop an application supporting Push notifications on iOS you might know that the development process is a bit janky. There is no good way to actually test your push notifications in the simulator so you have to resort to testing on an actual device and then sending your push notifications.

With Xcode 11.4 (beta) Apple finally made a big change, making it possible to just drag and drop a payload on the simulator and test your functionality in this way. Swift Lee did a great post on all the possibilities on using this new functionality that is worth checking out.
