These steps are as follows: =>After the User 1 sends the message to User 2; the User 2 will first receive a Push notification in which he would be asked for the permission to connect with the User1. =>After the User2 permits the connection; the APN will assign an ID string the iPhone App which will serve as the identification of the app on the iPhone device. =>At the next step; this ID will be uploaded to the requisite server applicat6ion by the iOS application =>The same process is repeated when the User2 replies to message of User1. =>If the receiver is not available then the message will be queued and will be send next time; when he Logs in.
