    If there is any issue due to nginx settings in your server, while access dynamic service worker generated by this plugin for push notification. Please browse https://domainname/pnfpb_icpush_pwa_sw.js if you get nginx 404 error then please update nginx settings in your server as shown in attached image file. Even for this website i have enabled nginx caching and i updated nginx settings like this. It is applicable only when you use VPS server with nginx cache settings and it cannot be updated in shared hosting.
    push notification service worker file nginx settings1
    push notification service worker file nginx settings2

    This Plugin has unlimited potentials and can or will be the best PWA Plugin in the future. I noticed I don’t get Push notifications on my IOS phone, it works perfectly on my Andriod and PC but nothing on IOS

    This plugin is designed using web push api using Firebase javascript.
    Ios is not supported for web push notification. Please verify this link from Firebase supported browsers https://firebase.google.com/docs/web/environments-js-sdk#browsers
    To integrate push notification using Apple Notification Service it requires custom app push notification using their own service using inbuilt web app/mobile app. Apple also requires apn certificate from ios developer account to integrate push notification using custom ios/macos app
