Description    
apsd stands for "Apple Push notification Service Daemon".

It uses what is known as 'push technology' to send notifications from external applications to the Apple devices such as laptops, iPhones, iPads, etc. You've most likely seen these kinds of notifications in the form of badges, sounds, alerts, reminders and similar popups.

The related "aspd-ft" process is the push notification service specifically designed for FaceTime.
