Whatsapp crashes on iPhone with iOS 9  – Fix

Reinstall Whatsapp

This is the most easiest thing to do. Reinstall Whatsapp if you have this issue. Make sure that you backup all your Whatsapp data before you do so. Reinstall Whatsapp from the app store and this should solve your problem.

Turn off backups

You can try to turn of iCloud backups for Whatsapp. Sometimes, failed backups can cause your application to crash. To disable backups on iCloud, simply do this when you open Whatsapp:

Settings>Chats>Chat Backup>Auto Backup – Turn this option off.

Remove contact picture

This is the option that is least likely to work, but it has worked for some people, so I am suggesting it here. Remove your contact picture. Also, you can remove it for all contacts and see if Whatsapp is back to normal. To remove pictures of contacts, do this:

  • Go to a contact and click on Edit
  • Click on Edit below the image and select Delete Photo.

If you have a 100+ contacts, good luck removing all the contact pictures.

Note that it is not guaranteed that this method will work for sure.

Disable Facebook Sync

The syncing of the latest version of the Facebook app has been having with iOS 9. This can cause problems with Whatsapp since it resizes images in the Contacts app. To disable sync with Facebook, go to the settings app on IPhone>Facebook and turn off “Contacts”

Reset your phone

The hardest option of them all. Make sure you backup all your data, contacts and content. Check that you have the latest backup on iTunes. To factory reset your phone, do the following: Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings.

Do not try this method unless all other options fail. It is better to wait for Whatsapp to fix this bug instead.

Microsoft Corp. has integrated Windows Vista and Windows 7 with Windows Aero support and especially a Flip 3D feature in an aero support. Flip 3D is generally a window switcher which switches in between the running windows in appearance of live streaming 3D.

When the shortcut of “Switch between windows” is misplaced from Quick Launch bar and you want to replace it or if you want to place Flip 3D shortcut on Desktop, you can copy the shortcut of Windows Switcher from the location

%systemdrive%\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder

Most of the Windows 7 users don’t want to add shortcut again to Quick Launch bar and would like to add Flip 3D icon to Taskbar. To do so, you can sue the following trick to create a shortcut to activate Flip 3D.

  • Create a shortcut by right-clicking on any blank space desktop. Then select New and then Shortcut

  • In the text box named  as “Type the location of the item”, copy and paste or type manually the following:  %WinDir%\System32\rundll32.exe dwmapi #105

  • In this step, enter any name to this new created shortcut for example Flip 3D.

You may be uncomfortable with the default icon for the created shortcut which looks pretty awkward. If you want to change the default icon, just right click on that icon and then go to its Properties. Find out the button named as “Change Icon” in Shortcut tab. Click on this button.
