The common apps like Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn etc. work proficiently in these devices. But, sometimes apps that are not commonly used devices can work ambiguously. You may face an app there that crashes randomly. Crashing app may quit automatically or return to the home screen without user intent. There is another possibility of crashing while doing a particular action in the application. That is a rare case by the way! I am going to mention a few solutions down there in the article for problems that you face in iPhone and iPad. 

You can use these tricks to make your device smooth for running your required app. The tips are given below.

  • Choose an app that causing some sort of problem and swipe up to quit. 
  • Go back to home screen and tap again on the app to relaunch it. 

This can help but not all the time. If it doesn’t help, don’t try doing this again and again to avoid further issues. I am going to mention some other ways to sort this issue out. 

Update the Application through App Store

There is a possibility of crashing an app if it has not the latest version in your device. This isn’t the case for all the apps in your device. Updating that app through Appstore is one good option. It is logically good too. You should have the latest version of an app that can offer more features. keeping your device up to date is a good practice! It shouldn’t bother you at all.

  • Update app that has some bugs. You should update all the app though. It keeps your device in good working condition.

If crashing is only due to some bug, then updating that app solves the issue. If it doesn’t work after that, you may need to follow my next option. 

Delete Application and Reinstall it

Uninstalling or deleting an app removes all the data related to the app from your device memory. For an app which has small volume is easy to delete and reinstall. If you have a bigger app then it can take some to download but can help to eliminate your problem. 

  • Tap the app and hold it that is causing a problem on the home screen. 
  • Find an “X” on the screen after tapping the icon. Drop that app in that “X” and confirm the deletion. 
  • Now go to the App Store and find that app in the search section again. 
  • Redownload the application by tapping on it. 

Now, try to open the app. It should work the way you wanted to. There is another advantage of deleting the app and that is it removes all the cache data with the app. It can help in cleaning your device. These caches can make your app heavier than expected. It causes in slowing down your device’s performance. So, Uninstalling isn’t a bad option at all. It keeps your device fresh. 

If deletion an app doesn’t work, don’t repeat the action, again and again, follow the last and final point.
