Despite being on opposing sides of the mobile tech conflict, Google has made the bulk of its services and apps available for Apple’s iPhones and iPads. Unfortunately, we can not exactly say the same for Apple. However, the most recent iOS software update appears to have broken one of the most popular Google apps among iPhone and Android phone owners worldwide – Google Photos.

There is an issue with the Google Photo app on the latest iOS 16.3.1 update. This issue was first noticed by The Verge and others went on to report this issue on Twitter. The issue could be causing the Google Photos app to crash when launched on iPhone. The update itself is minor. According to Apple, the update comes with bug fixes and resolves some security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, it is not quite obvious that it is the new iOS version that is impacting the Google Photos app. This is because while a large number of users are affected, an equal number are not. Fortunately, a Google spokesperson named Michael Marconi came out and stated that Google is aware of the issue and is actively working to resolve it. Google deserves credit for being so swift to respond, even for a defect that solely affects Apple product owners.

Google Photos on iOS users confirms there is an update

If you rely significantly on Google Photos, then you may want to delay a bit before upgrading to the next iOS software version. However, following Google’s words, a fix may be available pretty soon and you don’t need to worry. Until then, you may always access the platform and your photos using a browser.
According to some user feedback, the Google Photo app on iOS is now running smoothly again. Some said you have to delete the old app and reinstall it again. However, others said that Google has released an update for the app. You only need to update the app to get it running again.
