It has been ten days since iOS 10 beta was announced at the WWDC 2016 event. There are many new features, which come with the latest version. A large number of iOS users have installed the version even though it is only for developers. However, because it is just the beta version, there are many certain issues. For instance, app crashing has been reported by several iPhone users.
Fortunately, there are some tips that can work well in fixing the app crashing problems on iOS 10 beta.
- Reboot your device
If you are not able to open apps because they are crashed that time, please reboot your iOS device. Hold down the Home button and Power button altogether until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
- Check Out App Updates
You should update the apps, which are crashing on your device. This trick can help you solve the problem. Open App Store → Updates → Update All.
- Turn off Background App Refresh
Turning off the background app refresh will not only save tons of battery, data but also help you troubleshoot the app crashing problem.
Step 1: Go to Setting > General
Step 2: Choose Background App Refresh
Step 3: Toggle Off Background App Refresh
- Disable Automatic App Downloads
In case, your iCloud account is synchronized with other iOS device, you had better disable this feature.
Step 1: Tap on Settings → iTunes & App Store
Step 2: Disable Auto App Download
- Delete and reinstall apps
Apps store the documents and data in the background. Gradually, it becomes so problematic that it does not allow the app to function properly. To resolve this problem simply delete and reinstall the app.
To delete the app, just tap, and hold until the app icon vibrates. Then tap on the ‘x’ icon and confirm in the popup.
- Reset All Settings
Another solution to fix the app crashing issue is resetting all settings. Although it is a bit painful as you will have to enter Wi-Fi passwords again, it can do the trick. Go to Settings → General → Reset → Reset All Settings.
If all the above-mentioned tips do not work, you should downgrade iOS 10 beta to iOS 9.3.2.
Step 1: Download iOS 9.3.2 firmware for your device, here
Step 2: Turn off Find My iPhone feature on the device. Go to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone > Off.
Step 3: Connect the iOS device to your Mac or PC via the USB lightning cable, then open iTunes.
Step 4: Put your device into DFU mode. Hold down both Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds. Release the Power button but continue holding the Home button until the device enters DFU mode. Your device is now in Recovery Mode.
Step 5: In the iTunes interface, hold the Option key on the Mac, or the Shift key on a Windows, then click the “Restore” button.
Step 6: Choose the folder that contains the iOS 9.3.2 firmware you downloaded. Do not unplug the device until iTunes successfully confirms the restoration and the device reboots into the welcome screen.
