Apple released its latest version of iOS 16 for compatible devices today (February 14). The new iOS 16.3.1 update appears to be causing app crashes for some iPhone and iPad users. The update aims to improve the user experience with improvements to Find My and Crash Detection for the new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. However, some users have reported online that shortly after updating their devices to iOS 16.3.1, the Google Photos app crashes immediately on launch. The problems are not limited to a specific iPhone or iPad model, but affect the latest Apple devices. Google has now rolled out update 6.23.1 for the Google Photo app.
According to user reports on Reddit and Twitter, Google Photos app crashes instantly for Apple users with iOS 16.3.1 update. Several iPhone and iPad users claim that they cannot open or open Google photo library after installing the latest software. The problems don’t seem to be limited to any specific iPhone or iPad model, although most of the complaints online suggest that the problems also affect newer iPhone 14 models.
Google has officially recognized the problem and also provided a solution. The official Google Photos Twitter account confirmed that the team is “working quickly to fix this.” The company rolled out a fix in version 6.23.1 of the Google Photos app. The latest update is currently available on the App Store.
Apple earlier today released iOS 16.3.1, the latest version of iOS 16 with build number 20D67. It includes iCloud performance fixes, Siri and Find My, and crash detection improvements for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. The update is available for iPhone 8 or later, the second and third generation iPhone SE models.
