Has this error been resolved for PGB and Apple iOS app - since 2013? I do not have push notification enabled in my app and this is still popping up as an error when I've submitted to iTunes Connect. It doesn't seem to have been resolved as I've not found an answer to the issue in the forums.
Missing Push Notification Entitlement - Your app includes an API for Apple's Push Notification service, but the aps-environment entitlement is missing from the app's signature. To resolve this, make sure your App ID is enabled for push notification in the Provisioning Portal. Then, sign your app with a distribution provisioning profile that includes the aps-environment entitlement. This will create the correct signature, and you can resubmit your app. See "Provisioning and Development" in the Local and Push Notification Programming Guide 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.
The only advise has been to ignore the error, that the app will be approved so long as there are no other issues. Is this still the case in 2016?
As of yet, Apple does not reject an app based on this message. I haven't seen any movement to suggest that they will, but of course, that's no guarantee.
Can you share what plugins (& versions) and the version of Phonegap build you're using?
