Facebook iPhone application: what to do in case of a bug or problem?

The Facebook application may have bugs or stop working for several different reasons. First, you need to make sure it’s not a network issue: sometimes Facebook crashes just because you no longer have the Internet. Check that you are well connected to WiFi, or that you have no problem with your SIM card. If everything works, the problem may come from elsewhere.

Do not hesitate to inquire about the subject of failures that can impact all users, without forgetting to see if your application is up to date… All the manipulations to be done to repair Facebook on the phone are summarized in this article.

Update the Facebook app

You can put Facebook back, nothing helps: you continue to have problems with this particular application. In this case, you must go to the App Store (on iOS) or the Play Store (on Android), to check if you have the latest version of the application on your phone.

Most of the time, apps update automatically, when you have enough battery power and are on WiFi. But voluntarily or not, you can disable automatic updates, which is why it is always relevant to carry out this small check.

On your computer or smartphone, use the Facebook social network from any platform. Follow your friends’ news feed and posts wherever you are!

Reset Facebook on iPhone

Resetting the Facebook app can be done on all smartphones, whether they are running Android or iOS. Very concretely, you must access all the applications open in the background, then completely close Facebook. If that didn’t work, you can take it a step further by deleting Facebook and reinstalling it completely.

In order to eliminate any bug related to a faulty update or a system problem, check that you have an up-to-date OS and replace your phone, to see if the Facebook bug persists. If nothing is arranged, you can try other manipulations.

Check for general outages that affect Facebook

You have ruled out all the problems that can come from your system or your phone: have you thought about general failures, which can affect many people – regardless of the smartphone they use?

To make sure that there is no Facebook outage, just do a little research on the Internet. Go to the DownDetector site, where you can be informed of many general outages, those concerning Internet service providers such as Orange, SFR and Bouygues Télécom, but also those affecting services such as Facebook, WhatsApp or even Messenger.

Facebook outage

Most often, the problems encountered with the Facebook application are either from the phone system or from the service which is experiencing a more or less significant breakdown. Carry out all these checks one after the other, you will eventually (in most cases) find the source of the problem. Otherwise, please feel free to expose your problem on the iPhone forum.
