On Apple Dev site I turned On and after Off Push Notifications (without select certificates) of App ID connected to an App published in the App Store.

I noticed that the Provisioning Profiles (Development and Distribution) have been marked as Invalid, but changing/updatings the Provisioning Profiles, are now Active and I downloaded the new files.

The question is, what happens to the App which is currently distributed online with a Provisioning Profile which has now been updated?

I know that for future updates of the app I will use the new Provisioning Profiles, but I'm afraid that at the moment, with this situation, Invalid / Active, can broke the app currently in the App Store.

Provisioning profiles don't affect apps on the app store. Apple signs the app with their credentials when it's distributed from the app store.
