App Version 2.4.42 on iPad Air 12.5.5 crashes permanently

After the Update last night the ios App crashes permanently on every start.
I can’t change settings - the crash is faster.
I use my old iPad Air MD796FD/A as display into the groundfloor with the latest os-version 12.5.5.
TestFlight is not running - need ios 13 or newer.
With iPad-OS 15.3.1 the App is running.
What can i do??

Same crash here with IOS. And no way to roll back.

No crash here on iPhone 8, iPad Air2, iPad Pro.
All on iOS/iPadOS 15.3.1

Same here. Crash immediate after start on iPhone7 iOS 15.3.1.
Tested both 2.4.42 from App Store and 2.4.43 from TestFlight.

Just checked again with

iPhone 7 MN922ZD/A iOS 15.3.1 ( App Store 2.4.42)
iPhone 8 MQ6G2ZD/A iOS 15.3.1 (Testflight 2.4.43)
iPhone XR MH7L3ZD/A iOS 15.3.1 (App Store 2.4.42)

All working fine with my sitemaps.

Must be related to sitemaps.
Just created simple one and app does not crash.
I’ll go thru the one that crash to find problematic element.

That’s a really good idea and might be helfull to fix the issue.

The sitemap idea is nice, but the app crashes faster than I can adjust the settings.
I can’t even turn off demo mode.

Just remove the sitemap temporarily from your server, app shoud then ask for items…

Edit : Just saw your issue with demo mode, please try without any network enabled…

In my case it’s


in the sitemap that crashes the app. Just remove or replace.

BTW I’ve also checked iPhone 12 mini with iOS 15.2 => the app does not crash even using icon=“none”

I’ve created two “demo sitemaps” now, but they crash too.

Sitemap 1

sitemap default label="My first sitemap" {
    Frame label="Date" {
        Text item=Date
    Frame label="Demo" {
        Switch item=Lights icon="light"
        Text item=LR_Temperature label="Livingroom [%.1f °C]"
        Group item=Heating
        Text item=LR_Multimedia_Summary label="Multimedia [%s]" icon="video" {
            Selection item=LR_TV_Channel mappings=[0="off", 1="DasErste", 2="BBC One", 3="Cartoon Network"]
            Slider item=LR_TV_Volume

Sitemap 2

sitemap default label="My first sitemap"
    Switch item=Waesche_draussen
    Switch item=EG_HWR_Licht

Also shortcuts don’t work.

I just did the next update to 2.4.43 for IOS

Same crash

With the new app version the same result with all sitemaps :roll_eyes:

We need to investigate the issue thoroughly and you can contribute to the solution:

Could you please explain your server setup?
What version of OH server are you using?
Are you securing the communication or the access?
Please check whether your issue is covered by this thread in GitHub

I tested with both OH versions.
2.5.12 is my productivity system and 3.2.0 is my testing system
the first is on pi4 with influx-db, grafana and pivccu.
the second is an pi3b with only OH.
i tested with secure and unsecure connection

Everyone experiencing crashes with devices running iOS 12 (or earlier): this is caused by a bug of Apple’s back deployment of the Concurrency framework and we have to wait for the upcoming Xcode release to fix it.

For now you can revert to v2.4.41 via TestFlight. Sorry for the inconvenience, unfortunately not much we can do atm.

Related GitHub issue.

Unfortunately, Testflight only works with iOS or iPadOS 13 or later

Right, I always forget that the TestFlight app has a deployment traget of iOS 13 :man_facepalming:

On the positive site of things, Xcode 13.3 now has a release candidate. So it shouldn’t be too long until we can release a bugfix.

with the current version 2.4.44 it works again. Thanks for your quick help.
