According to Apple update on Oct, 2020 (https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=c88acm2b), The deadline for such change is Mar, 2021. Apple requires push notification provider with following conditions to use APNS for supporting push notification.
Now, with the APNS in Notification Hubs, I'm using the authentication mode as the certificate. I am wondering is this mode still available? Or force me to switch to Token-based mode. Thank you.

    Thanks for asking question! You can continue to use certificate based authentication. The service has been updated to send both certificate and token based authentication methods through the HTTP/2 API instead of the deprecated binary protocol.
