Apple has sent an email to registered iPhone developers, asking them to download a pre-release application in order to run a high-volume test of the company’s Push Notification servers. The email provides developers with a redemption code good for the download of the Associated Press app for iPhone OS 3.0, with instructions to notify the company if the app does not begin receiving notifications within 48 hours. The email also notes that the application can only be installed on devices running iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5, and that the functionality of the application will expire in seven days.
