[Interest] (New?) Warning: Missing Push Notification Entitlement - iOS

I am receiving this also on a recent TestFlight build with Qt 5.5.

Missing Push Notification Entitlement - Your app appears to include API used to register with the Apple Push Notification service

However I had published to the app store in July using Qt 5.5 and had not seen that message.

I wonder what the cause is?

Dear developer,

We have discovered one or more issues with your recent delivery for "TSR Mobile". Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery:

Missing Push Notification Entitlement - Your app appears to include API used to register with the Apple Push Notification service, but the app signature's entitlements do not include the "aps-environment" entitlement. If your app uses the Apple Push Notification service, make sure your App ID is enabled for Push Notification in the Provisioning Portal, and resubmit after signing your app with a Distribution provisioning profile that includes the "aps-environment" entitlement. See "Provisioning and Development" in the Local and Push Notification Programming Guide<https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/ProvisioningDevelopment/ProvisioningDevelopment.html> for more information. If your app does not use the Apple Push Notification service, no action is required. You may remove the API from future submissions to stop this warning. If you use a third-party framework, you may need to contact the developer for information on removing the API.

After you’ve corrected the issues, you can use Xcode or Application Loader to upload a new binary to iTunes Connect.


The App Store team

*External Message - use caution*

I've been publishing our app to the iOS app store for a while, and I don't remember seeing this with our previously Qt 5.5.0-compiled version. We aren't using anything.

While it is only a warning, I was wondering what changed that might have brought this on? We aren't using any push notifications at this time (though I continue to look into it)
