Hello @Starsurf10

Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave. Could you please try deleting your cookies from the app to see if the issue is solved?

  1. Launching Brave, tap Menu --> Settings
  2. In the Features section, tap Brave Shields & Privacy

Let us know if that works!

Well I would if I could open the app and get that far, but I can’t even do that. I’ve already tried deleting and reinstalling and that hasn’t worked either. Everything was great until the last 2 updates

Hi again! @Starsurf10

Thanks for the information, I’ve shared this with our team and I’m waiting for further information on the matter. Once our team has answers, I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Additionally could you kindly share your iOS device type and iOS version number?

Be waiting for your response!
Regards.

I just upgraded to the latest version of Brave on my iPhone. The program fails to load while doing the rebuilding of my tabs. I really want to keep those tabs!

It doesn’t even say it crashes and has to rebuild the tabs. It’s just a black screen (I am on the Dark mode) and it exits back to the iOS desktop. I have rebooted the phone and exited most other apps.

Is there a way to downgrade to the immediately prior version?

Thanks!

PS - I have iOS 15.7.1 on a 512 GB iphone Xs Max. Also, I tried to use the Tusk browser, which I’ve never used, and it also fails without loading. However, I unloaded some tabs in Safari and then Tusk did wind up loading.

I have now updated to iOS 16.2 and even with the reboots and unloading everything but the suspended Brave instance, it won’t load up. Just crashes back to the desktop.

I just now terminated the Brave instance and tried reloading, but it still crashes coming up.

I’m having the same issue…again. I had this exact issue back in November and had to wait a couple weeks for an update for the issue to resolve.

I have an iphone 13 with 16.1.1 software and I’m currently updating to 16.2

@Cankles if it makes you feel any better, when this happened to me in november, all of my tabs came back/restored when the app finally was able to load again

Thank you for the encouragement, alyssasach. I will calm my anxiousness and keep using an alternate browser, for now.

It’s funny how I am so used to Brave that using another browser feel foreign.

Just updated (to 1.46.2) and I’m still having this issue.
