    Me too. I've been told not to worry about it. I trust the person who told me so I didn't reject the binary. One of the plugins I'm using must some push code in it somewhere.

    Me too. I'll trust the person who told nocanwin also, especially because the warning email from Apple says: "you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery", which doesn't sound like a definite rejection.

    We got this warning as well, maybe someone from Unity can verify that there are no links to the APN libraries in Unity ?

    We got this warning while submitting the app to the store yesterday... maybe something changed on the app store auto analyzer? Nothing changed on our code base, neither the plugins...

    "Your app appears to register with the Apple Push Notification service."

    Let's wait to see the review result..

    They called me back pretty quickly! I was sort of told not to worry about it. The fellow I spoke to wasn't 100% sure but said that if it was fatal at that point the binary would have been rejected. We'll see...

    FWIW they told me review time is about 5 biz days or so.

    I was afraid of that email!

    I also received the email today after submitting my app.
    Thanks @vonchor for the information.

    So I understand the recommendation is not to reject the binary right?
    I am not using push notifications and basically I am using the same plugins as in other apps without having this warning.

    My guess too is that Apple change something in the analyzer.

    Please post any updates! Thanks!

    Hey nocanwin,

    "My update got approved. I guess it's nothing to worry about."

    Thanks for that report. I just got the same warning. It's due to the Prime31 "Etc" plugin.

    I had no idea the Etc plugin includes Push Notification code (I guess most people use that plug in for that reason, I do not)

    If this was in January 2013 for you, it would seem to be based on your experience that it does NOT get rejected at the itunes desk - if you do not actually use push notifications (but just have 'dead code" in there).

    My question, are you using the Prime31 Etc plugin? Same issue? Cheers and thanks again for the report

    Hi guys,

    Mysubmitted app got approved!
    We were not using any suspicious plugin that could trigger the warning.

    We were using NGUI and Game Analytics but I have used them before without having this warning.
    I guess they change something in their review process.

    Got that warning just now. Assumed it was the Prime plugin. Glad to hear it probably won't cause rejection.

    Alert .. notice the great guys at Prime31 have sensibly added a warning about this. It explains everything.

    http://prime31.com/docs#iosEtc

    "Important note concerning push notifications: it appears Apple's automated scanners have again started to incorrectly scan and detect push notification code that isn't touched. If you are not using push notifications just delete the AppControllerPushAdditions files before submitting to Apple and that should appease their static code analyzer."

    Thanks for that, Prime31 !!

    I can't imagine not using the "Etc" plugin in any project, it is that simple to fi it - delete those TWO files mentioned. hope it helps someone.

    Trying to post update to my app and I got the "Missing Push Notification Entitlement" error from Apple review.
    The problem is that the status is now INVALID BINARY and I'm not sure what to do. Am I supposed to just wait for a review or
    does this smear there is no binary in queue? I am not using any prime31 plugs
    but I am using Vuforia Plugin. My app does not use push notifications. Is there any way to disable it in Xcode?

    Thx for any help!

    FYI it's not because of any prime31's plugin ( I don't use them and got the email after submission )
    It's [probably] because of checking local and remote notification after app launch (which was added maybe in 4.0 ?) whose API probably belong to push services
    madpoet - you sure you signed the app with certificate not enabled with push notifications ? If the status is invalid binary then you have to resubmit I'm afraid
    I intend not to take any action since it's just a warning

    Update - I was able to re-build and re-send and the problem was fixed. I wonder if it was just the build that had something wrong set because the
    same unity project run through Xcode again was fine. The app ha sheen approved and all is well... For now....:)
    Thx so much for helping out.

    I submitted yesterday, and got the same warning. If you don't see a further post from me, then assume that Apple didn't have a problem with it. (PS - I use Prime31 Etcetera, Flurry, Storekit, etc... so I assume it's from that.)

    Same problem, Unity 4.2.1
    Also I cannot follow the Prime31 tip of removing AppControllerPushAdditions , as I do not find it in my project.
    I am not using any 3rd party plugin so the warning is not Prime31 specific

    I also get notified for my TestFlight Beta build. The Facebook SDK is also uses Notifications (FbUnityInterface.h file). Right now I'm waiting for review, for Beta. Fortunately, there is no review for my own build tests or internal testers.

    -- Update:
    My app approved for beta testing.

    What if I am using local notifications instead of the push notifications? Would they still work if I use your plugin?

    Would be nice if you could change the platform dependend compilation #define directives to support tvOS too. (Problem and solution is identical on tvOS – I’ve fixed it with you script)
