YouTube says it has fixed its iOS app after many users reported the app was crashing. It’s unclear exactly how widespread the problem was, but it did appear to affect quite a few users.
In a tweet from its TeamYouTube account at 2:19PM ET, YouTube said that “many” were dealing with crashes, and a lot of people reported crashes directly to the account. At one point, DownDetector indicated there were more than 7,500 reports of problems. I didn’t run into issues in my brief testing, but a colleague experienced the crashes.
The company didn’t reply to a request for comment.
