Your certificates expire in 30 days

The iOS certificates created for publishing your app on your Apple Developer accountare valid for one year only (12 months for the iOS distribution certificate and 13 months for the push certificate). This is why Apple warns you 30 days before about the expiration. 

What consequences does it have?

Your distribution certificate expires in 30 days 
This does not affect your app already published on the App Store. The distribution certificate only needs to be renewed if you have to rebuild the app or send a new version of your app to the store. 

Your push certificate expires in 30 days 
When the push certificate expires, the push notifications will stop being sent to your iOS users. 

Unless your app has to be rebuilt and resubmitted to the App Store, it is not necessary to renew your certificates right after Apple sent this message. It's enough to renew them a few days before the push certificate expires.

How to have your certificates renewed?
