    Can it be possible that we can make an Iphone application that runs in the background. Actually I need to process some scenario that requires it to be running in background. In simple words I need this application to behave similar to the windows services that runs in the background.
    If this is not possible, then does there exists any other way which can be helpful to me?

    The answer is NO

    You cannot run code in the background, as a service, wake up periodically, or in any other way run when you are not the foreground application using the official SDK.
