Scheduling a local notification

    var notification = new UILocalNotification();
    notification.FireDate = NSDate.FromTimeIntervalSinceNow(0);
    notification.AlertTitle = "Title of the Alert";
    notification.AlertBody = "You just got a new notification";
    notification.AlertAction = "Ok cool";
    notification.SoundName = UILocalNotification.DefaultSoundName;

When receiving the notification:

    public override void ReceivedLocalNotification(UIApplication application, UILocalNotification notification)
        // Notification AlertAction string is always null.
        var action = notification.AlertAction;

I tried different values for the notification AlertAction but neither worked, it was always null.

NOTE: The above code runs fine when running on a device with iOS 9.3.

I loaded up Xcode and ported the above code over and am seeing the same thing happen in Xcode as in Xamarin Studio.  AlertAction appears correctly in the iOS 9 simulator, but shows up as nil in the 10.0 simulator, so it appears this is something on apple's end, not an error in Xamarin.iOS.

Yeah @Timothy, I was able to check that this morning. Migrated the same code to Swift and had the same error, was waiting to come back home to update this bug with this information.

It's Apple issue.

Thanks for your prompt reply.-
