Game Crashes after IOS Update

[ad]Dear Elizabeth,

First I want to thank you for all the help you give via your website and e-mail.

Now, Since I updated to the ios7 on my ipad whenever i finish playing bejeweled blitz it freezes. I have to shut to pad off (sleep) and back on several times, sometimes even have to shut it clear down. What is causing this? It never happened with ios6.

Thank you, Patty

Dear Patty,

The update from IOS6 to IOS7 was a major update, and many app developers have been working to make their apps compatible with the new OS.

I don’t have Bejeweled Blitz, but it is probably one of the apps that needs updating.

To check and see if there is an update waiting for your app, just follow these directions:

1. Go to your home screen, and tap on the “App Store” icon.

2. In the App store, tap the “Updates” icon in the lower-right corner of your screen.

3. If you have any apps with available updates, they will be listed on this screen, you can either tap the “Update” button to the right of each app you want to update, or the, “Update All” link in the upper-left corner of your screen.

I hope this helps with your Bejeweled Blitz. If it doesn’t you might want to try removing the app (hold your finger on the icon until it jiggles, then tap the X) and re-installing it.
