Questions about MAUI's Entitlement.plist

How important is the Entitlement.plist in MAUI? and why it's not added by default? so does this mean I don't need to for example to set the Push Notification capabilities?

Kindly advise..

    The Entitlement.plist isn't added by default, you can add a new entitlements file (XML file) named Entitlements.plist to the Platforms\iOS folder of your app project. If you want to use Push Notification capabilities, you can add the following XML to the file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
    <plist version="1.0">

    For more details, you can refer to Capabilities - .NET MAUI | Microsoft Learn and Entitlements - .NET MAUI | Microsoft Learn

    About Push Notifications in iOS, you can refer to the link, it's official Xamarin.iOS doc and it also applies to MAUI.
