    Hi guys,

    I am using the latest iOS 7 beta 4 on my iPad 3rd generation and it seems that some apps are just crashing on launch. Is it because their code is not compatible with iOS 7 or is it some other reason.

    example: Pacman Dash

    Please let me know


    Thanks,
    Rahul

    It's mainly to do with Autolayout changes from what I have seen. In iOS 7 there have been changes to how Autolayout calculates.

    An example is a UITextView with constraints on all sides plus either a width or height constraint. In iOS 6 it will break one of the constraints and continue the layout. In iOS 7 it will cause an exception - i think this will be changed in GM to just continue - its mainly to highlight to the devs to code it properly in the first place rather than relying on breaking of constraints.

    If an app doesn't specifically say it's compatible with iOS Anything then there is a good chance it won't run.

    You are running apps compiled for a previous iteration of the OS.

    BETA

    The exact specific reason is both irrelevant and unknown because the devs are different.
