Spotify, TikTok, Tinder + More Down & Crashing on iOS

UPDATE: It seems like services are now back online, hooray!

A number of popular apps and services including TikTok, Spotify, Pinterest, and Tinder are currently broken on iOS devices.

Although the exact cause of the problem isn’t yet confirmed, early reports suggest the outages are caused by Facebook’s SDK, which apps use to manage user logins. Facebook said on its developer platform this morning that it was “aware [of] and investigating an increase in errors on the iOS SDK which is causing some apps to crash.”

The apps affected all include a Facebook software development kit (SDK) tool that’s used to power sign-in features for many of the apps.

With over 286 million monthly active users on Spotify, being down is a big issue – especially on new music Friday! Including the other apps, several hundred millions users should be affected right now.

According to Down Detector, the problems started at around 11:32 BST, and are affecting users around the world.

For premium users of Spotify who have downloaded their music, they can turn Airplane mode on and still access the app and their downloaded music.
