[Bug] Now Resolved: FB iOS SDK Outage Causing Disruption to 3rd Party iOS Apps (July 09-10, 2020)

July 13, 2020ByCalvin Grunewald

Last week we made a server-side code change that triggered crashes for some iOS apps using the Facebook SDK. We quickly resolved the issue without requiring action from developers.

This is the second similar incident this year. We want to apologize for the inconvenience these events have had on our developers and their users. Stability and reliability are critically important for the people and businesses who use our services. While we can’t guarantee a bug-free experience, we have learned from these events and continue to improve the stability of our SDK.

As best practice, we suggest developers regularly update the Facebook SDK and encourage users to update to the latest version of your app. This helps integrate the latest Facebook SDK stability and performance enhancements. You can find the latest information about Facebook platform issues on our platform status page.
