Ever since Instagram added the Reel section, I have enjoyed the app a lot since people worldwide can create aesthetic short video content and share it as Reel to get more views and likes. As a travel geek, I love making travel reels of my favorite trips. But sadly, I got annoyed that the Instagram app keeps crashing on iOS 16.
Before the release of iOS 16, everything was going smoothly. But when I tried to create the Instagram reel after updating my iPhone to iOS 16, the instagram app kept crashing my iPhone. Even after force closing and trying to post the Reel again, instagram keeps crashing on iOS 16. The Instagram app was not allowing me to post the Reel, and the story sound was missing on my iPhone after IOS 16.
I thought, let’s wait and try again after some time. But the sad thing was the app still showed the same tantrum. Hence, I decided to look for a solution on Twitter and Reddit. Thankfully, I got rid of the Instagram crashing issue on my iPhone on IOS 16. Let’s check out the working fixes.
