Thanks for your response, John!

We're already a web app, our users can directly browse our application from Safari or any other desktop/mobile browser. Our mobile application is just a way to improve customer experience by adding advanced features (camera, video, audio recording, barcode scanning, AR features, offline capabilities...) that are only available there because we don't fully rely on web technologies for each of them.

For offline capabilities for instance, we indeed use AppCache for caching offline static assets but offline data syncing is done in our "native" code in our mobile application because no web technology exactly fits our needs (so offline mode is only available in the mobile app version and not the web app in its browser version).

Not being able to use service workers in our mobile application would mean rewriting an entire offline caching mechanism ourselves (and for iOS only since both Android and Windows support it).

Is there any other way to enable Service Worker than to enable App-Bound Domains?
