Moreover, a number of my friends, who don’t have a developer account, have rushed to install the latest iOS version, which is currently available as developer beta.
Considering iOS 10 is still in beta version, we don’t expect it to run as smoothly as expected. There are certain issues like app crashing has been reported by several iPhone users. On a number of occasions, I have also found some apps getting crashed at launch.
Fortunately, there are some tried and tested tricks which have worked pretty well in fixing the app crashing issue in iOS 10 on my iPhone. If you have also run into the same problem, you need to check out these handy tricks.
