Spotify’s iPhone application has stopped running, making it impossible for people to listen to music.
The application crashes as soon as it opens, which is obviously due to a problem with the service itself.
Spotify has discovered the problem and said it is solving the problem.

But in the short term, there is a way to get music on the iPhone: Spotify’s web interface.
Spotify is most commonly used on computers where the Spotify application cannot be installed. It provides a version of the service that can be accessed over the network, without the need to download any applications at all.
The file can be found on open.spotify.com, and the file can be accessed anywhere (including on the iPhone).
Actually logging in to the phone is a bit complicated because it will automatically try to open the Spotify app because this usually provides a better experience. However, in this case, opening the application through the Spotify web interface will only cause another crash.
Instead, the user must choose to cancel the option and then enter the web interface.
Although the function has many limitations, its function is largely similar to the Spotify app version. For example, it may not work properly in the background, and the interface is more error-prone than native iOS apps.
By switching the phone to airplane mode and then trying to open the app, some users also reported success. Although feasible, the app can only play any music that has been downloaded and played locally.
