8 Ways to Fix Facebook App Crashing on iPhone [2023]

Apr 17, 2023 • Filed to: Mobile Repair Solutions • Proven solutions


For many causes, any app on your smartphone might crash at any moment. While this may not be a major concern if it happens to a less important app, it might be a huge concern if you use your phone to "Facebook." Consider how you'd feel if Facebook crashed unexpectedly when you were having a "chit chat" with a long-lost buddy. Isn't that a real bummer? Under any situation, you must take immediate action.

Why does Facebook keep closing on me?

The fact that the Facebook software crashes more often than other applications is possibly due to a variety of factors. One of the most common causes of your Facebook software crashing is that you haven't changed it in a long time. Not getting the most recent update installed will trigger problems when signing in and using the software.

Another cause may be that the handset you're using is overheating or has battery issues. Apps will even crash inadvertently due to memory issues or a phone's system's inability to run well.

The other big explanation why the Facebook software keeps crashing is that the social networking platform's website is down, which can only be resolved by the social media site.

How to Fix Facebook Crashing On iPhone

1. Restart your phone

If you ask a technician to fix a problem with your gadget, the first solution they often suggest is to restart your phone. Why? Because it works most of the time. Restarting your phone, tablet, or even your computer is known to fix many problems.

2. Exit the application

Then log out of the Facebook application. When a dispute happens during the account session, signing out would usually resolve it.

The measures are as follows:

Step 1: In the upper right corner of the Facebook app, press the three bars button.

Step 2: Choose Sign Out from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Log back in after you've signed out.

3. Clear cache

Clearing the cache, including restarting the computer, has proven to be a big help for many people. Clearing the archive prevents the deletion of temporary files without erasing sensitive records.

Take these measures to clear the cache for the Facebook app:

Step 1: Go to your phone's System Settings and press Apps & Notifications or Application Manager, depending on the choice you have.

Step 2: Tap All Apps if apps are accessible directly, otherwise tap Installed Apps.

Step 3: Choose Facebook from the Installed Apps section.

Step 4: Choose Storage and then Clear Cache from the drop-down menu.

4. Clear data

If clearing the cache doesn't help, you'll need to go a step further and clear the data for the Facebook software. Clearing data differs from clearing cache in that it exits the app and deletes all app settings as well as any Facebook media downloaded.

If you imported photos from Facebook, transfer them from the Facebook folder to some other folder using a file manager or gallery. This is why data wiping is beneficial since it removes everything from the Facebook archive.

Repeat steps 1-3 for Simple cache to clear Facebook app info. Then go to "Storage" and choose "Clear storage / Clear info" instead of "Clear cache."

5. Update the app

It's possible that the issue is caused by a flaw in the Facebook software. Check for an update for the Facebook software in the App Store. If an upgrade is accessible, download and install it right away. Restart your device after the installation is complete

6. Reinstall the application

Another option is to uninstall and reinstall the Facebook software on your computer. Go to the Play Store and check for Facebook to uninstall the game. Then select the Delete option.

Alternatively, switch to Settings > Apps & Notifications > Application Manager. To uninstall Facebook, go to the Facebook page and press the Uninstall icon. Then uninstall it from the Play Store and reinstall it.

7. Disable power-saving mode

The power-saving mode or battery optimizer may even cause the Facebook software to close indefinitely. You'll need to switch off Power Saving Mode to see how it's responding.

To do so, go to your device's "Settings" and choose "Battery." Here you can switch off the power saver. You may also disable Battery Saver in the Notification Panel's Quick Settings portion.
