An app error causes some iOS users to be unable to open their apps, as affected iPhone and iPad users see the message “This app is no longer shared with you” when trying to access an app.
There are several complaints about the problem MacRumors forums and on Twitter from users who are having problems. ONE MacRumors the reader describes the problem:
Are there any other widespread app crashes? I’m suddenly informed that “this app is no longer shared with you” from multiple iOS apps. When I follow the request to the app’s App Store page, the only option is to “open” which then just puts me back in the same loop.
Dozens of Twitter complaints suggest that the issue is affecting people running both iOS 13.4.1 and iOS 13.5, and it’s not clear what is causing the problem as not everyone seems to be affected. Some users have had the issue after updating apps on the last day.
There have been complaints about many apps including YouTube, Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, TikTok, LastPass and more. We updated the WhatsApp app an iPhone on iOS 13.5 before writing this article and got the error message right away.
People affected by the issue have been able to fix their apps by deleting the app that is not working and reinstalling it. Reading the app instead of deleting it can also work to fix the problem.
