Viber: Crashing Or Down Check

Anjjie: Viber and Spotify both acting up on my iphone 11. Tried opening and it crashes instantly.

James: On the IOS opening Viber causes it to immediately crash. Work-around is to switch your phone to airplane mode. But as soon as you have a network it crashes/closes on IoS

Anna: Viber and Spotify crashes on iOS ás well.

Tip has been shared by a Twitter user on how to launch the Spotify app:

If Spotify is crashing on your iPhone you can avoid the crash bug by launching it with your phone in airplane mode and Wi-Fi turned off. As soon as you re-enable Wi-Fi or 4G then it’ll crash again due to the Facebook iOS SDK issue

UPDATE: The reason behind multiple services being down or crashing is due to Facebook’s SDK. Facebook acknowledges the issue on its developer platform, here is what Facebook reports:

“We are aware and investigating an increase in errors on the iOS SDK which is causing some apps to crash.”

UPDATE 2 11:40 am EST: All services are back to normal after Facebook resolves its SDK issue. In a new update Facebook said, “Earlier today, a code change triggered crashes for some iOS apps using the Facebook SDK. We identified the issue quickly and resolved it. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
