The background task was canceled by the application. This can happen for one of the following four reasons:

  • The task is considered an idle task. This means that the background task is still running, but without doing anything – for example, a JavaScript task that does not call the close() function.
  • The background task uses the MaintenanceTrigger and the system transitions to DC (battery power).
  • The app unregisters the background task, in which case the task is cancelled if it is currently running.
  • The app that registered the background task is uninstalled while the task is running.
