Contact Tracing: Why Does the Everbridge Contact Tracer App for iOS (EVBG CT iOS) Require Wakeup Notifications?

Environment:

Apple iOS

Question:

Why does the Everbridge Contact Tracer Mobile App for iOS (EVBG CT iOS) require wakeup notifications?

Answer:

Wakeup notifications allow the Mobile App to return to an active state so that the operating system can continue leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Proximity-based Contract Tracing functionality. The app has been built to function in the background, but there are scenarios where it is not able to override Apple's operating system, which puts apps that are not in use in a suspended state.
