Get push notification while App in foreground iOS

For displaying banner message while app is in foreground, use the following method.

iOS 10, Swift 3/4 :

// This method will be called when app received push notifications in foreground
func userNotificationCenter(_ center: UNUserNotificationCenter, willPresent notification: UNNotification, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping (UNNotificationPresentationOptions) -> Void) 
    completionHandler([.alert, .badge, .sound])

iOS 10, Swift 2.3 :

@available(iOS 10.0, *)
func userNotificationCenter(center: UNUserNotificationCenter, willPresentNotification notification: UNNotification, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: (UNNotificationPresentationOptions) -> Void)
    //Handle the notification

You must also register your app delegate as the delegate for the notifications center:

import UserNotifications

// snip!

class AppDelegate : UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate, UNUserNotificationCenterDelegate

// snip!

   func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

      // set the delegate in didFinishLaunchingWithOptions
      UNUserNotificationCenter.current().delegate = self
