The issue of WhatsApp crashing for many iPhone users has affected many users globally. Many iPhone users, including those using the latest iPhone 13, reported that the app was randomly closing down whenever they tried launching it.

Initially, it was thought that the issue could be in Apple's latest iOS update after a user reported that he faced the issue after having upgraded to iOS 15.2. However, other users noted that the crash was not specific to the latest iOS update and was experienced by older versions of the operating system as well.

WhatsApp crashing on iPhone


Although only iOS users faced this issue, the app crashes are most likely due to a bug in the application or a server issue from WhatsApp. Even the WhatsApp beta version available through Testflight has been crashing.

Nitin Gupta, head of Engineering at WhatsApp acknowledged the problem on Twitter and asked users to launch the app in Airplane mode. We have reached out to Nitin to know whether the issue has been resolved, but we are yet to hear from him at the time of filing this story.

WABetaInfo, which had earlier reported the issue, claims that it has now been fixed. However, until we receive an official statement from WhatsApp we cannot confirm the same.
