Web Push Notifications for me was a recent deal breaker, I wanted to make a PWA simple HTML+JS+CSS that would work on all devices but product/business want a simple alert counter on the icon.

We wont move forward with a PWA until Apple implement Web Push Notifications. It is really such a basic feature of an app.

I guess now instead we will do something with React Native instead.

I can understand for mobile, if Apple devices have to be targeted too, that the lack of Web Push Notifications is a no go. Hopefully it will happens someday.

To the contrary, on desktop, I personally do not see any show stopper currently to not use these.

Have fun with React Native then 😉
