A number of my students' ipads are not able to run iMovie as it quits immediately after opening. Anyone run into this issue? I've called Apple, but they don't have an answer. I'd delete it and add again, but the students have projects in the app.
Running the latest iOS- 10.2.1 and latest version of iMovie 2.3.4
So we are on the most recent version iMovie 2.2.3 and have run into this issue. But this started happening when we started updating our iPads to 10.2.1, when you click the app it immediately closes. If you look at recent apps the iMovie is in there but when you select it it crashes again. We have tried re-install option out of self-service but that didn't work, only solution was to delete the app and install it again out of self-service. I don't see how the auto-update could have affected it as the version of iMovie currently out has been out since July and we didn't install iMovie until the fall on all these devices.
seeing the same problem... iPads running 10.2.1 suddenly having issues with iMovie ver 2.2.3... instructed students to double-click the home button and close the blank screen... then had students go to self-serve and re-install the app.... It doesnt work...
Removed the app from the devices... the app reinstalled when during inventory check... that works...
Removed the app from the devices... had the students install the app from self serve.... that works...
no one seems to know why it is happening.. I thought that it might be a storage space issue... iMovie is a space hog...
We also have this issue with imovie. it seems the only thing that has worked is complete removal and reinstall. Verified issue exists with ios 10.2 and 10.2.1, imovie version installed is 2.2.3 on the ipad and in jss for the deployment that it is in, however I have two other apps in my app catalog that are on a previous version. jss version was updated yesterday v9.97.1488392992 for this bug fix:
[PI-002627] Fixed an issue that caused mobile device apps to reinstall if there are duplicate app entries in the App Catalog and one entry is an older version, regardless of scope.
I will update the other two deployments and report back.
We have seen this issue happening across many apps. All of our iPads affected were running iOS10.2.1. It has been very frustrating for staff and teachers, because they don't usually have time to re-install apps. I have seen the same issue with the following apps:
I think its an iOS 10.2.1 issue. I'm hoping that iOS 10.3 resolves this.
Has anyone had any successful ways to get these Apps to stop crashing?
I am also having this problem with a random lot of iPads not opening: iMovie Playgrounds Popplet Explain Everything
and occasionally Google Drive, although Google Drive did start working again after applying a reinstall through Self Service!
I believe the iPads in question were running 10.2.1, although updating to 10.3.3 has not resolved the issue.
Like someone above also stated, even though the apps crash immediately on opening they appear to be in the recently opened page, yet they still crash from trying to open here.
What I've found is this is usually if the apps have been left on the iPads (prior to iOS 12 or 12.1 I can't remember which version they fixed this behavior in). If you don't wipe the devices before enrollment it keeps the Apple version of Clips/Keynote/Numbers/Pages/Garageband/iMovie, which can't specifically be managed or made to be managed. So it seems when Jamf sends the command to manage them or do updates on preinstalled Apple apps (again prior to 12 or 12.1) it corrupts the app and then it quits out. The only other difference is that the Apple apps (before corruption) all require you to be logged into an Apple ID before 1st use whereas the Jamf pushed apps do not.
Apple I believe has since addressed this with any new shipped iPads and as long as you check the "make Managed when possible" check box for the apps Clips/Keynote/Numbers/Pages/Garageband/iMovie, it should allow the updates to happen without corruption even if you don't first delete them.
At least this has been my experience. If we have the apps scoped to these devices as soon as you delete the original version the jamf scoped version will push and correct the issue.
