Snapchat Aware of Latest App Store Update Causing App Crash, Promises Fix Soon [Updated]

Snapchat's support account today confirmed on Twitter that its latest App Store update, pushed less than one day ago, is causing widespread issues for users, specifically causing the app to crash a few seconds after launch.

General Snapcaht Apps Feature 2
The latest ‌App Store‌ update, version 11.34.05.45, is listed as a normal update with bug fixes, but it has caused widespread crashes for users. Over the last few hours, Twitter has been bombarded with users reporting the issue, with no fix currently available. Snapchat, at the time of writing, has not yet pulled the update and says it is working on a fix. The fix will likely come in the form of a new ‌App Store‌ version.

Snapchat users on previous versions of Snapchat for iOS should be clear of any app crashes. For users impacted by the latest update, be sure to keep the app up to date by periodically checking the ‌App Store‌ for any updates or by enabling automatic ‌App Store‌ updates within Settings.

Update: Snapchat has released an updated version of its app on the ‌App Store‌ that solves the crashing bug.

One of the biggest annoyances about the App Store is the inability to roll back to the previous version of an app.

I don't understand why Apple hasn't implemented such basic functionality. There's no reason a bad update should inconvenience users any longer than it takes for them to hit "Downgrade".

People still use Snapchat in 2021?
There are 280 million daily users which is up 22% from the prior year.

I actually found a hack for preventing these crashes and wanted to share with the community here:
1. Tap and hold Snapchat icon
2. Wait until it starts jiggling
3. Tap “Remove app”

This process also worked on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for me.

Not once in ten years have I ever found updating any app worth anything. The new version is never better, just different and usually worse in many respects. My motto: if you've got an app the works fine, DONT update it ever
