Testing Push Notifications on the iOS Simulator

Create a JSON payload similar to the one below and save it as e.g test.apns

{
    "Simulator Target Bundle": "your app bundle id goes here",
    "aps": {
        "timestamp": 1168364460,
        "event": "update",
        "content-state": {
            "driverName": "Anne Johnson",
            "estimatedDeliveryTime": 1659416400
        },
        "alert": {
            "title": "Delivery Update",
            "body": "Your pizza order will arrive soon.",
            "sound": "example.aiff"
        }
    }
}

Run the simulator, then drag the .apns file over to the iOS simulator. At this point, you should see the Push Notification pop up.
