Just yesterday, the developers released version 1.2 of the Corona warning app. This version probably caused problems if the automatic background update was deactivated. The hotfix released today fixes the crash problem.
As the colleagues from iFun report, numerous users have struggled with crash problems. Version 1.2 of the Corona warning app was only released yesterday and, in addition to fixing some problems, should also bring new languages.
The hotfix to version 1.2.1 released on Wednesday fixes a problem that the app could no longer start on some devices. The problem was probably due to the deactivated automatic background update.
Only a few days ago it emerged that the app generally had problems executing the automatic risk determination and was therefore unable to issue reliable warnings. The development team has equipped the app with a workaround.
The Federal Government’s Corona Warning App is intended to warn of potential infection risks based on Apple’s Covid-19 Contact Framework. It got off to a bumpy start.
The app is available free of charge in the App Store and requires at least iOS 13.5. It was also criticized because it meant that older devices could no longer be operated with it.
