SOLVED: Reading mobile OS notifications

Post by simon.schvartzman » Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:15 pm

Is it possible to read/acknowledge a mobile OS notifications from a LC script?

This is what I want to achieve and the problem I'm facing:

I have a mobile (iPhone or Android) device running unattended 24 x 7, from time to time it stops and I can't find out the reason. When I get to the device (installed far from home) it is resting on the Home screen and there is no indication of what happened.

I suspect the reason could be an OS notification like those when the device is overheating or when the battery is under 20%.

Any ideas as how to deal with this?

Thanks

Do you mean you have an app running on the device 24/7? Do you mean that the app crashes?
Plug it in and pull the device log from xcode.

Mickey, comments on your remarks below
Do you mean you have an app running on the device 24/7?
Yes, this is the case
Do you mean that the app crashes?
I'm not sure if it is a crash or something else. I've noted that when the OS sends a notification (like battery low) the LC App gets interrupted and doesn't go back to the running state. Am I correct?
Plug it in and pull the device log from xcode.
That's a brilliant idea, as I use Xcode just to load to iPhone I never thought about this. I'm not sure I will be able to read the outcome but that's another story...(may be I'll need your help (again))

Many thanks
Simon

If you can pull the log you can submit it with a bug report.
I don't remember what ios does when you get a low battery. If someone here doesn't know, I'm sure there's info. on the ios dev portal

Mikey, I was able to pull the log (attached). I have no idea what it means but looks impressive to me :D

Will submit the bug report as you said and will update here about the findings.

Thanks

It seems is not a bug after all. @Panos conclusion, after performing the log analysis is there was no crash the iPhone stoped due to temperature (overheating) problems.
