Do you have an iPhone that runs on iOS 11 and you are a frequent Snapchat user too! Well, that’s a deadly combination because many people who have updated their iPhones and iPads to iOS 11 are finding it difficult to use the Snapchat app. Let’s find out more about the Snapchat could not connect error in detail.

snapchat could not connect

We know that Apple has proudly announced the release of its iOS 11 to all developers in the opening keynote of WWDC. After that convention, lots of people had the privilege to get the latest iOS 11 on their iPhones and iPads. However, it is worth noting that the OS is still in its beta stage and it will become public most probably by the end of this month.

Snapchat has taken a usual step which has prevented the app from working on the beta platform. As a result, iOS 11 now allows Snapchat users to easily save and record videos and images without the sender being notified about it.

How to Fix Snapchat Could not Connect Error on iPhone

A few days ago, a potential bug was identified in the Snapchat app, and this bug is capable of capturing the incoming media without the app sending any notification to the sender of that media file. We call this an error because this is not the normal function of Snapchat. The app does not work in this way and to counter this problem, the recent update of the app prevents Snapchat from working on the devices that run on iOS 11.

It has not yet been confirmed whether this issue or bug has been created knowingly by the Snapchat guys or it is simply a technical error (Snapchat could not connect. Please check your connection and try again). We cannot ignore the coincidences and the fact that this strange problem is limited to iOS 11 alone. The app continues to work fine as before in the older versions of the iOS.
