Quick Fix For “Unable To Download Facebook App.” When Trying To Download Update

/ 3 years ago


Facebook’s latest iOS 7 update is experiencing some issues when attempting to download the new released version. After being updated, many users are reporting that they are unable to download Facebook app and it’s been crashing on the launch. Today, an updated version v6.7.1 was released with bug fixes, however, many users are simply unable to download Facebook app update from the App Store.

The error “Unable to Download App. “Facebook” could not be downloaded at this time.” shows up when you try to update Facebook on iOS. Similar error also shows up when you try updating it from iTunes on the desktop which is giving “There was a problem downloading the artwork for Facebook.” error message. These both errors confirm that something is definitely going wrong with the iOS 7 Facebook app. However, it is unsure if the issue is at the end of Facebook or some problem with Apple’s App Store.


If you are one of those users who are unable to use Facebook when download failed on you, a very quick fix is to delete the Facebook app and reinstall it again from the App Store. The Facebook app will be downloaded, but without the update. Do not attempt to download the update again as it will just hit the issue described above again. Instead, iOS users should wait for a fix to be available for this issue before proceeding with the update again.
