    air 3.3 and background ios apps

      Hi All

      I cannot find some coherent information on this so I am asking here.

      I need to write an iOS app that needs to perform a webservice call every x minutes to update the slqite db on the device, even if the application is not running in the foreground.

       

      From google what I could find out was that iOS will only allow your app to run a small time after closing(to finish an upload etc).

       

      e.g. "AIR does not provide support for this iOS background processing model":  http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/articles/considerations-air-apps-mobile.html#articleconten tAdobe_numberedheader_5

       

      but then later " applications may now support location updates and networking in the background": http://forums.adobe.com/message/4380335http://forums.adobe.com/message/4380335

       

      Can I do what I need in Air 3.3+ an iOS 5.1+ ?

       

       

      Thank You
