Over the past hour or so, some YouTube for iPhone and iPad users have reported that the app is repeatedly crashing on open.
The overall service is not down with this issue specific to the iOS client, though not all users are affected. (Several devices we checked running 17.36.4 are fine.) For those impacted (of which there are countless social media reports), opening the app results in it closing and crashing after a few seconds. Force closing and relaunching does not fix the problem.
Google on Twitter said just after 11 a.m PT that it’s “aware that many of you using the YouTube app on iOS devices may be experiencing crashes.” YouTube apologized and said that it has “”begun working on a fix” and that it will provide updates.
YouTube’s mobile web client continues to work for iPhone users impacted by the crashing bug.
hi, we're aware that many of you using the YouTube app on iOS devices may be experiencing crashes
we're so sorry about this & have begun working on a fix! updates soon🔍
