“The Pokémon Go is one of the fastest-growing augmented reality Games across millions of apps on the Apple App Store. Due to large numbers of downloads in less time, the Niantic-developed game has server overload error, bugs, and battery drain Pokémon go. We have found Pokémon Go crashes on iPhone after the iOS update. Unfortunately, the game has no magic or hidden button to resolve random crashes. Even though we followed several clues through that, we continue our game.

So if you’re one of them and looking for the best solutions to fix an issue, let’s try the following steps. I hope this resolves your problem and starts the game smoothly.

  • Solution #2: Update Pokemon Go & iPhone Software

    If the Pokemon Go’s server is not down and compatible with iPhone, then the next thing you should be doing is updating the Pokemon Go if already not. Alongside, update the iPhone too.

    To Update iOS Devices,

    1. Go to the Settings
    2. Tap General.
    3. Tap Software Update. [Latest available software is iOS 16.6]
    head to setting app and tap general choose software update on your iphone

    Re-launch again and keep continuing. However, it may be panic about what we can do in front of the head of this bug.

    In addition, take visit of the Pokémon Go issue page to know all about it.

    Solution #3: Reduce Motion on iPhone

    Using the Reduce Motion function on the iPhone, you can easily control the graphics of the device. Although, games like this demand high graphics for smooth gameplay. Check your iPhone’s settings and tweak the Graphics and Motion settings.

    Step #1. Open the Settings
    Step #2. Scroll down to Accessibility.

    Step #3. Tap Motion.
    Step #4. Enable/Disable Reduce Motion

    Solution #4: Close the Background Apps

    On average, we use 10-15 apps in our daily routine for some or another purpose and leave them open virtually. All of those applications running in the background consume a good amount of processor and RAM. Keep note that whenever the application starts randomly crashing, head over to the recently used apps and force close them. Here we will do the same.

    Solution #5: Reconnect to the Internet

    Pokemon Go operates perfectly on the network, Cellular Data, and Wi-Fi. Just in case, to make sure you are not dealing with network issues, switch the iPhone internet to cellular data or vice versa. Then, force close the game, change the network, and again try to play.

    Solution #6: Delete and Install Pokemon Go

    Lastly, all you can do is delete the app and re-install it. But, don’t worry; as Pokemon Go stores the data on the Cloud, all of your gameplay will be saved to your game account.

    1. Long-press the Pokemon Go app until the apps start jiggling.
    2. Tap (x) to delete it.

    Solution #7: Wait a While

    Popular games like Pokemon Go are likely to go under maintenance or hit by a bug; the best thing you can do is wait for a while until the developers fix the issue. Ask your fellow friends or colleagues who are having the same problem as you, then act accordingly.

    Solution #8: Report a Bug

    if you are affected by the issue and there is no any way to sort it out by yourself. When I highly recommended checking the issue with the app developer from the app settings. As Given below steps,

    1. Open the Pokemon Go app on your device, Go to the Main menu
    2. Go to Settings and Find the FaQ that’s related to your problem.get-pokemon-support-online-in-app
    3. That’s it.

    Note: Unfortunately, no direct method exists to send Bug reports to the Pokemon Go development Team.
