Snapchat was crashing every time it was opened leading to a bad experience for users who were not able to send any updates.

In this day and age, even if a small company's app crashes, it becomes kind of unacceptable. When that happens to a mega corporation, it really goes beyond that. We are talking about the Snapchat app which was crashing every time you clicked on it. While those carrying an Android smartphones were safe and could go on their merry ways and share snaps at will, but those who have Apple iPhones, iOS to be precise, were facing a tough time. The issue stemmed from the fact that every time a user wanted to boot up Snapchat by clicking on it, surprisingly, the app crashed. It left users helpless as the problem was not solved immediately. The issue was acknowledged by the company through a tweet, but nothing much else was happening.

Until now, that is. The Snapchat bug fix has been rolled out and this was revealed by its SVP of Product and later on by the company itself on its Twitter account. The tweet said"The issue has been resolved. If you're still having trouble, please manually update to version 11.34.1.35 in the App Store Thumbs up". The problem looks to have been solved and Snapchat is back to its best. However, you will need to go through the process to fix the problem yourself unless you had the fix update the app automatically on your device. The Verge reported that after updating their device, iPhone 12 Mini, to the latest Snapchat version, the problem and crash message is no longer appearing and they even managed to send a Snap successfully.

So, what do you need to do to get the fix, if your device has not already automatically downloaded it? Here is how to fix Snapchat bug: Go to the Apple App Store and then your profile picture. You can pull to refresh and the update will be there for download.
