I posted this bug over at github: https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/5869
TL;DR - Permissions for push return as “granted” when they have not in fact been granted. Attempts to obtain device token after the code proceeds to try on standalone iOS does not work with the error message “This app does not have permission to show notifications”. (See the github issue for full error detail/screenshots). Works fine in Expo Client.
Speculation is that the permissions status returned is wrong and since it will not prompt the user to grant permission in order to obtain permission, it never gets off the ground.
Question: Is there anyone out there who is using SDK v35/iOS 13.1/Standalone App and is able to use Push Notifications successfully? If yes, it would be helpful to know there may be something in particular wrong with my setup/certs/etc.
