Last weekend, Facebook Messenger was having problems.
According to some users tweeting about the issue, the latest update on iOS 11 seems to be the culprit.
On the other hand, users who have not updated to iOS 11 appear to be experiencing the same problem as well.
It looks like the latest iOS update is not the one to blame, but rather, it’s the most recent Facebook update that’s causing the problem.
In a statement released by Facebook yesterday, the company claims to have fixed the issue:
"On Friday September 22, 2017, some people reported having trouble accessing Messenger on iOS. We quickly investigated, and we have released an update. If you continue to experience problems please look in the App Store for version 135.1 and uninstall/reinstall the app. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.”
