If your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus has beginning to crash often lately, resist the temptation of literally crashing it yourself. There must be a reason for this upsetting manifestation and, with our help, you are going to spot it and act in an effective way to fix the apps that keep crashing on your Apple iPhone device.
From our experience, most app crash reports have one of the following common triggers:
- Bad apps;
- Bad software;
- Memory problems.
The difference between bad apps and bad software is given by the fact that the latter would rather target the iOS version. And since you’ll notice the mention of faulty apps when we will discuss the memory problems, let us make another observation. There are apps that make the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus keep crashing because their software has problems. And there are apps that simply need more memory from your device and, since they don’t have it, they act erratically, making you think that there’s something wrong in the sense of the first category. Speaking of which…
Bad apps that haven’t been properly maintained by the developer
If one app or even more apps are making the iPhone freeze and crash constantly, you can blame it on its software first. Go to the App Store, the place from where you have downloaded it in the first place, and see what other users are talking about it. If you bump into other similar complaints and you can see that the developer didn’t update it in ages, give up on it without any kind of remorse!
Bad software and glitches or bugs you cannot precisely identify
If you suspect that there might be a problem with the software of your iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone 8, check out the steps required to factory reset an iPhone 8 / 8 Plus. You should remind yourself to create a backup of your data and, once your applications, personal information, and account settings are stored in a safe archive, you can proceed to fix a lot of problems with this factory reset.
Memory problems, from app data to internal memory
As suggested above, there are apps that require you to delete their data, as in a cash refresh, and there are apps that require you to delete some of the things stored on the iPhone. The ones from the first category can be handled if you go to Settings. The General tab will give you access to Storage & iCloud Usage, then to Manage Storage and, ultimately, to Documents and Data. If you swipe left, you can delete items individually. If you tap the Edit option you can use the Delete All option.
If you’ve removed all the app’s data but the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus continues to crash, free up the internal memory. It’s the last thing you can try on your own…
