Restart your phone
One of the most common causes of app crashes is a glitch in your iPhone‘s software. To fix it, you can reboot your phone—just hold down its Home button for about 10 seconds until you see Apple appear on the screen and then let go. This forces your phone to restart without affecting any data stored on it. Just remember that, when you restart your device, you’ll lose all unsaved work within apps that were open prior to rebooting.
Delete any Unwanted Apps
Perhaps you downloaded some apps because they looked cool, or were recommended by a friend. But unless you use them regularly, it’s best to uninstall these unused programs from your phone. Delete any apps that you don’t use so that your memory space doesn’t fill up with apps that slow down your phone and make it run more slowly.
Restart those apps again
Restarting apps may seem like a simple solution, but it works! Power off your phone by holding down on the power button until you see a slide to power off on your screen. Then press and hold down on your home button, which will restart your phone. This usually fixes issues with crashing apps. Also, make sure to have all of your apps up-to-date!
Update your software
Many apps are designed to work on older versions of iOS, meaning if you haven’t updated your phone in a while, there may be glitches. Head to Settings > General > Software Update and download any available updates. (You can also do it wirelessly if you have a newer model.) If that doesn’t work, head to Apple’s iTunes page and grab a more recent version of iTunes than what’s currently on your computer.
Avoid the app for now
If you’re having problems that your iPhone apps keep crashing, it might be best to stay away from them until they can be updated to support iOS 11. It might not seem like a big deal at first, but having apps crash over and over again on a new operating system is annoying. Wait for them to update before you download them again.
