OSX Tips – Turn off / Disable Apple Push Notifications from the Command Line

Push Notifications

You can disable or turn off Apple Push notifications from the command line with the following command:

sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.apsd.plist

And you can turn it back on again with the following:

sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.apsd.plist

You could then test to see if it is on or off with either:

ps aux | grep apsd


sudo launchctl list | grep apsd
