iOS Background fetch [HELP NEEDED]

Is it currently possible to subscribe to Apple’s background fetch mode? I’d like to be able to update the content in the background every once in a while. Also, is there an equivalent for Android?

I noticed there’s a plugin called fuse-cordova-bridge, which I could potentially use to implement cordova-plugin-background-fetch. This feels hackish though, and in the end is only supported on iOS.

Can this be done easier?
