Snapchat warned iPhone users that the version of the messaging app available in the App Store has a problem, and is something the company is trying to solve.
If you’ve been experiencing the bug where the iOS version of Snapchat crashes at launch, it seems that there’s now an update to fix it available in the App Store. The bug that’s been fixed by the update didn’t appear to have affected the Android version of the app.
Snapchat last updated its iOS app in the App Store on June 28, with the version 220.127.116.11 update adding a number of “bug fixes” to the messaging tool. However, the maintenance release has gone wrong for some users.
Before updating to the latest version, 18.104.22.168, the app would give me a message that something went wrong, before crashing to Springboard on my iPhone 12 Mini. Now, I’m no longer getting the error, and have successfully been able to send a Snap.
The Snapchat Support Twitter account hasn’t yet tweeted about the fix (despite having a pinned tweet talking about the bug), but Snap’s SVP of Product has tweeted about the issue being fixed. Both myself and one of my co-workers tested the update, and it fixed the crashing issue for both of us.
