According to the Down Detector site, there was a surge in reports of TikTok being down little after 10am BST / 5am ET.

The app is reportedly crashing as soon as fans attempt to open it.

TikTok is yet to reveal the cause behind the strange bug.

“Is TikTok down now cause I can’t seem to open it properly,” one user said.

“TikTok is currently down everyone!” another wrote.

“Not sure why but hopefully it’s back up soon!”

A quick test by The Sun indicates that the issue may be due to the recent iOS 16 update, though TikTok nor Apple has confirmed this.

TikTok crashed on two iPhones with the iOS 16 update installed but the app loaded fine on a third iPhone with the older version of iOS installed.
