TikTok, Spotify, Tinder and more DOWN as Facebook bug causes iPhone apps to crash
TIKTOK, Tinder, Spotify, Pinterest and loads of other apps are crashing in a major global outage.
The issue is related to Facebook technology used by these apps – and is playing havoc with iPhones everywhere.
Online outage tracker Down Detector has logged thousands of complaints across dozens of apps.
Users began reporting issues at around 1pm London time – and 8am New York time.
Facebook has already acknowledged responsibility for the problem, because it powers many of the apps.
“We are aware and investigating an increase in errors on the iOS SDK which is causing some apps to crash,” Facebook admitted.
The apps experiencing issues use Facebook to manage user logins.
And uniquely, the issue appears to only affect iPhone users – and not Android users.
More to come…
