Instagram Crashing For You On iOS 7 (B3)? – Here’s The Fix.


Those who have installed iOS 7 (Beta 3) may be experiencing the usual bugs and crashes. These are a given considering the software is not considered final.

But there is one crash issue which has a pretty simple fix.

Instagram works pretty well on iOS 7 (Beta 3)(at least for viewing). However, try to launch the app’s built-in ‘camera’ to add that latest shot you just took at the beach, and you’ll soon be back to your homescreen.

To fix this, you just need to head to Settings > Privacy > Microphone from your iPhone‘s homescreen, and then switch the option ‘Instagram’ to “ON.”

Once this is complete, relaunching Instagram, (and its built-in “camera” mode), should no longer cause the app to crash back to the homescreen.

The fix was discovered by Twitter user and software engineer – @TylerNol, and reportedly relates to the official Instagram app still using a ‘selector’ which is set to be “depreciated” with the launch of iOS 7, this Fall.
