The problem is “cannot receive and take actions on the push notifications in React Native bundle” .

Receiving notifications and opening application by clicking the notifications happens on Native iOS layer, but these notifications cannot be passed to React Native.

For example, FCM provides a subscribe function messaging().onMessage(async remoteMessage => {}) which can inform React Native about the message, then React Native code can perform some actions like fetch data, display content or navigate to specific screens etc.

Currently MCReactModule in react-native-marketingcloudsdk is only able to configure how to receive notification, but cannot handle notifications after receive them.
