New Alert Center notifications for Apple push certificates

What’s changing 

The Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) certificate is a critical component for advanced mobile management for iOS devices. This certificate expires yearly and requires manual renewal. If you don't renew the certificate, your organization’s iOS devices will not be able to access Google Workspace applications after the certificate expires. To help you stay on top of their renewal period and take action in a timely manner, we will: 

Notify you via the Alert Center and email when: 
  • Your certificate is 30, 10, and 1 day from the date of expiration. 
  • Your certificate has expired.
