The apns component is used for sending notifications to iOS devices. The apns components use javapns library.
The consumer is configured with 3600 seconds for polling by default because it is a best practice to consume feedback stream from Apple Push Notification Servers only from time to time. For example: every 1 hour to avoid flooding the servers.

The ApnsComponent must be configured with a com.notnoop.apns.ApnsService. The service can be created and configured using the org.apache.camel.component.apns.factory.ApnsServiceFactory. See further below for an example. And as well in the test source code.
When Camel will fetch feedback data corresponding to inactive devices, it will retrieve a List of InactiveDevice objects. Each InactiveDevice object of the retrieved list will be setted as the In body, and then processed by the consumer endpoint.
Camel Apns uses these headers.
