Is TikTok down?

Reports that Tiktok is down around 10:21am UK Time (5:21am EST) on Thursday 15th September.

Website Downdetector, which tracks online outages, reported that the TikTok app crashes when users try to open it.

A quick test by The Sun shows that the issue may be due to the recent iOS 16 update, although TikTok or Apple have confirmed this.

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

The Sun reached out to TikTok for comment.

Many users then took to Twitter to discuss TikTok’s problems.

One user wrote: “What’s up, is Tiktok down?”

Another said: “Is it just me or is it tick tock Do you keep killing me when I try to click on the app??

Why does TikTok keep crashing?

It’s not immediately clear why TikTok keeps crashing.

The problem seems to stem from iOS 16, the latest version of the iPhone operating system, which launched this week.

However, this has not been confirmed by either Apple or TikTok.

The Sun reached out to TikTok for comment.
