Pass Update Notifications for Apple Wallet

On Apple Wallet, Pass update notifications appear as a message on the device’s lock screen and as a new field on the back of the pass. You can set a custom update notification through the UI or the updatepassdata API. The new field on the back of the Apple Wallet pass will say ‘Last Notification’. Each time you send a new update notification it will replace the text in the ‘Last Notification’ field on the pass. If you set a custom update notification but do not update any field, the notification will still appear on the device’s lock screen and the back off the pass.
