        Good morning!

        I'm new on iOS dev and I have question about creating apps for iOS.

        I curently have Android app witten in React Native + Background Python service bundled with it.

        The Python service is used to gather files metadata from blockchain.

        Is it also possible to have background service running on iOS?

        Thank's for all anserws.

          For the moment I’m going to ignore the Python part of this because, while using Python complicates things, it doesn’t fundamental change the answer.

          Which leaves us with this:

          Is it also possible to have background service running on iOS?

          Probably not, but to give you a definitive answer I need you to explain more about what you mean by “background service”.  Under what criteria does this code run?  Does it respond to IPC requests from other code?
