onRegister fires correctly, but onNotification never catched

See original GitHub issue

On Android I have no problems, on iOS I am able to catch onRegister event and get the token correctly, but when I test push notifications, the event onNotification seems not working: it never fires.

My configure code is:

const configure = async () => {
    console.log('push notification configured');
    PushNotificationIOS.addEventListener('registrationError', (e) => { alert(JSON.stringify(e)) });


        onRegister: function (token) {
            //process token
            alert('Token! ' + JSON.stringify(token));
            console.log('[CATCHED] onRegister:', token);
                console.log('[ERROR] device push token has not been saved on the database'),

        onNotification: async function (notification) {
            console.log('[CATCHED] onNotification: ' + JSON.stringify(notification));
            let notifType = '';
            //console.log('notification received: ' + JSON.stringify(notification));
            if (Platform.OS === 'ios') {
                notifType = getNotificationType(
            } else {
                notifType = getNotificationType(
            //console.log('notification type: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ' + notifType);
            //console.log('notification s: ------------------> ' + JSON.stringify(notification));
            switch (notifType) {
            // process the notification
            // required on iOS only
            if (Platform.OS === 'ios') {

        senderID: '-----',

        permissions: {
            alert: true,
            badge: true,
            sound: true,

        popInitialNotification: true,
        requestPermissions: true,

In iOS, the console log [CATCHED] onRegister: fires correctly, but [CATCHED] onNotification: is never fired.

same for me, onNotification only listening when clicking on the notification, but not when receiving the notification / notification fires.

pakshucommented, May 6, 2020

Issue resolved after using the latest version of this library and @react-native-community/push-notification-ios

Also added below code according to latest installation steps here

//Called when a notification is delivered to a foreground app.
-(void)userNotificationCenter:(UNUserNotificationCenter *)center willPresentNotification:(UNNotification *)notification withCompletionHandler:(void (^)(UNNotificationPresentationOptions options))completionHandler
  completionHandler(UNAuthorizationOptionSound | UNAuthorizationOptionAlert | UNAuthorizationOptionBadge);
