Starting with iOS 13 and Xcode 11, Apple mandates the use of CallKit when PushKit is used. An iOS app must report incoming calls with CallKit in the didReceiveIncomingPush callback or the app will be terminated. And, if an app repeatedly does this, or if it repeatedly fails not to report an incoming call, the system may stop launching the app for VoIP pushes altogether. See Apple's anouncement here.

We have released a new version of our iOS SDK (4.x) to comply with Apple's new directives, starting with this new version we'll only support VoIP Push with CallKit, if our customers want to use push notifications that are not VoIP push/CallKit related, they will have to use regular Push via iOS UserNotifications Framework, Sinch SDK will not handle it anymore.

Similar to iOS SDK, Android SDK in the near future will stop to sending notifications that are not Voice or Video initiation related (VoIP Push).

Our Managed Push Service will soon start to block all messages that are not VoIP related. We are doing this to avoid old iOS & Android Clients to send regular push notifications via VoIP Push, this would cause iOS13 clients to be throtlled by APN, and consequently stop receving any push notification. Also this will optimize our Managed Push Service to handle only VoIP related pushes, which are our focus.
