1. Why Does My Spotify Keep Crashing on iPhone

There are several reasons who Spotify app keeps crashing on your device. Here are some-:

Low Storage

Spotify uses up a lot of space on your device. If not properly managed, your device might be low on space. This, in turn, might cause the app to crash.

Outdated App

Spotify, like most other apps, has new updates available from time to time. Updates, which essentially fix bugs and glitches. Your Spotify app might start crashing once there are bugs and glitches in the outdated version. If this is the case, there is no need to worry. Simply update the application and enjoy!

Old iOS

Just like you need to update the application, your iOS must not be left out. Your Spotify is still likely to crash if your iOS isn't up-to-date, even if the app is.

Low Power Mode

When your device is on low power mode, it restricts some apps' function, causing them to run below their full potentials. If you have low power mode constantly active on your device, the sudden change in controls might cause your Spotify application's crash.

Background App Refresh

Check that your background app refresh setting is turned on for your Spotify app on your device. If it's not, that might be the reason for the app's crash.

2. What to Do When Spotify Keeps Crashing

You can hard restart your phone by:

  • Holding the home button and power key simultaneously until the Apple logo appears on the screen (for iPhone 6 and older versions).
  • Holding down 'Volume Down' and sleep-wake button on iPhone at the same time, and continue holding them until your device restarts (for iPhone 7).
  • Pressing the 'Volume Up' first, then 'Volume Down,' and holding the power button for about 10 seconds till the Apple logo appears (for iPhone 8 and later versions).

2.6 Clear iPhone Storage

2.7 Update iOS to the Latest Version

All applications installed on your iPhone are sure to work smoothly if you install the latest iOS on the device. Sometimes apps crash because the outdated iOS version can't withstand the app's latest versions.
