1) Notification arrives.
2) Notification alert/sound/badge works correctly and the notification is
displayed to the user.
3) iOS's ReceivedRemoteNotification does not fire until the user taps the
notification. When the notification is tapped, it fires which correctly
initiates the sync.

But when (ex. click on app icon) I get back to the backgrounded app (or open a closed app)
ReceivedRemoteNotification not firing. How read remote notifications when badges number ar > 0 and the app is open not from the notification bar.???

ps. my app has the "Remote notifications" background mode enabled in the plist

Did you add "content-available":1 to your push notification payload? The app won't be woken if it's in the background.

Your push notification payload should look something like

    aps = {
        "content-available" : 1,
