If you have an Apple Developer account, at some point you will receive an email with a Certificate Revoked notice. Emails like this can be alarming because it sounds like a problem has occurred within your account that will affect your apps in some way, which is rarely the case.
This article provides information regarding the notice and what to do in case you receive one.
Below is a sample of a Certificate Revoked Notice:
When we are renewing push notifications - either because the certificate has expired or the notifications are failing to come through - we have to revoke the existing push notification certificate (APNs Production iOS certificate) in order to create a new one. We also carry out this process when submitting app updates.
You will typically receive this notice from Apple in any of the following cases:
- You have republished an app
- You have requested a push notification certificate renewal
There is no need to forward these emails to us or contact Apple in response to them unless you begin to notice problems with push notification delivery. If that does occur, definitely shoot us a message so we can look further into it.
