Push Notification, a mobile service created by Apple which was released with iOS 3.0, back in June 2009. The service uses push technology via an open IP connection which allows an app to notify you of an event without the need to actually boot up the app. Notifications may include badges, sounds or custom text alerts which are forwarded from the servers of third party apps.
Whereas this might be a great feature, there are several reasons why you may want to turn off push notifications on your iPad. Moreover, users can turn on or off push notifications for individual apps.
Below is a complete guide on How to Turn Off Push Notifications on your iPad:
