iOS Iphone / IPad development question

Is it possible to create a service that runs continuously on these devices? I had looked at this in the past and a few years ago the answer was definitively NO, however there was some promise of adding that functionality at some point.

I have been trying to Google this, but I can’t seem to find a definitive answer anywhere. If the answer is still no, have plans for this kind of feature been dropped or is Apple still promising that some day this will be a reality?

Pretty sure it’s the same No. I don’t think that apps that send push notifications run continuous but I could be wrong.

I think the limit is still something stupid like 10 minutes like what PasteBot had to limit their background clipboard to.

There’s limited background multitasking, but it has to be user-driven - they launch the app and it can continue to do certain things after it’s switched away from. There’s no way to guarantee you have a background service running at all times.
