Apple iOS Badge Count Updating

A common request that we get in support is "How do I keep the badge count accurate even when the app is in background?"

If you really want accurate badge counts per device, use this sample app that pulls channel history in the background using silent push notifications.

This will not work for iOS applications if the app has not ben started (i.e. the app must be idle in background or running), but Android GCM are silent by default and always give you the opportunity to preprocess the notification.
