CALL OF DUTY MOBILE DOWN – UPDATE ONE: The issues affecting Call of Duty Mobile looks to have been resolved now.
It appears the issue causing COD Mobile to crash, not work or not open on iPhones was sparked by a problem with the Facebook software developer kit for iOS.
Facebook has confirmed that they are investigating the issue. The problem also caused other popular apps such as Spotify and TikTok to crash on iOS.
