If you’ve ever encountered a bug where the iOS version of Snapchat crashes on launch. It appears that an update is now available to fix it in the App Store. Bugs fixed by the update do not appear to affect the Android version of the app.
Before updating to the latest version 126.96.36.199, the app shows me a message saying something went wrong before it crashes at Springboard on my iPhone 12 Mini. Now I no longer get the error and can send a Snap. succeeded
This is what the bug looks like when it appears:
The Snapchat support Twitter account has yet to tweet about the fix. (Although a pinned tweet mentions a bug), Snap Products SVP tweeted about the issue being fixed. Both myself and one of my colleagues tested the update. And it fixed both of our downtime issues.
