    This is absolutely a regression, by the way. In 5.3, iOS push notifications worked. In 5.4, they do not, with no way outside of changing an esoteric C++ macro in an Xcode project file -- with no documentation, release notes, etc. to that effect. This is a total headache for CI-based builds because we need to do a find-and-replace in a post-process script to make the change, which is brittle. The only (seemingly) relevant blurb in the 5.4 release notes is this:

    [525606] iOS: Fix to use remote notifications API only if they are used. This fixes a warning when submitting to iTunes Connect.

    which is not a publicly viewable bug report, and does not go into detail as to how the Unity can be told that the API is "used" (presumably, that would be by calling UnityEngine.iOS.NotificationServices.RegisterForNotifications and passing "true" as the second argument, but that does not work).
