Remote push notification doesn't wake up app

We use remote push notification with content available key set to 1 which , from
apple documentation, it has to wake up the app, but it doesn't work properly, sometimes
the app doesn't wake up.
We use this mechanism to send device location to our server.
Why remote push notification doesn't wake up my app all the time ?

Sounds like an issue you need to take to Apple via Developer Portal channels.
