Instagram no longer works on iPhone and here is what’s wrong
Many iPhone owners are unable to open the Instagram app since the latest v255.0 update was available on iOS
It’s straightforward and closes right away. Instagram has not yet made clear whether it plans to roll out a fix.
Instagram has frequently occupied the spotlight in recent weeks, whether it was due to the restriction of nude photos in messages, or the extension of the maximum duration of stories from 15 to 60 seconds.
However, this time a rather annoying bug has put Instagram in the news.
In fact, a lot of iPhone users (the majority of whom are using iOS 16 or later) are complaining on Twitter and other social media platforms that they can no longer open the app.
The Instagram app for iOS closes right away after opening, according to every testimonial. The typical workarounds, like restarting the phone, are ineffective.
The issue, according to the affected users, first surfaced after Instagram’s most recent v255.0 update went live on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.
Strangely, iOS 15 users don’t appear to have this bug.
Instagram has been down for more than 24 hours. The moment the application launches, it crashes right away.
HOW YOU CAN USE
If the app isn’t working for you, try logging in via a browser until Instagram fixes the bug brought on by the most recent update, advises one Twitter user.
The issues have now been fixed in a new update available in the App store.
