I just tried launching an app on my iphone ( it happens to be a game called Tennis Clash) and the game crashes and closes as soon as i start it up, i tried deleting it and reinstalling it and that didnt work, tried rebooting my iphone but the same thing occurs. this literally just started happening 30 minutes ago. It also appears to happen with a few other apps on my iPhone as i just tried a few other apps and i have no idea whats going on or would could be causing this. Many apps on my iPhone don’t seem to be able to launch now as they crash right away as soon as I try to start them up

I had the same thing happen on my iPhone 6S+. It happened several times with the app Cara. Very strange. I killed off all the running apps and the crashing stopped. Probably coincidence.

I’m glad to see I’m not the only one, this is beyond bizarre. I really don’t know what is going on, Waze isn’t working either, Facebook and Instagram appear to be working fine but many of my apps no longer launch and crash as soon as I start them

It’s an issue with the Facebook SDK

I've seen a ton of people reporting the same thing on Reddit in the past couple of hours. There seems to be some massive systemic problem that suddenly happened.

No issues here. All apps working as designed. Of course I don’t allow that trash Facebook anywhere near any of my devices.
I don't have Facebook on my phone and it's happening to me. A chess app crashed -- perhaps it uses the Facebook login tie-in.

I tried to see if there are any crash logs in console app. Nothing oblivious for the apps that were crashing.

The issue appears to have corrected itself guys it must have had something to do with Facebook as one of the members above mentioned, I’m glad things are working as they should

I was wondering why Nextdoor kept crashing...

Scary that Facebook is so tightly integrated to all of these apps...

I noticed this too! Multiple apps on mine. So I force restarted my iPhone 11, which is rare for me. StockTwits did it. I think JustWatch as well.
