Now, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into this troubleshooting guide below.
1. Reboot the Device
First of all, you should try restarting the device to check whether the problem is fixed or not. Sometimes issues with the system glitch or cache data can eventually trigger app crashes or performance-related problems whatsoever. It’s better to reboot the system to clear out temporary glitches in most cases. Simply unlock the device lock screen and long press the power button to open the power menu. Then select Restart.
2. Check the Internet Connection
Sometimes issues with the poor internet connection can also trigger multiple conflicts and your Android apps may start crashing randomly if they require to run or fetch data via the internet while startup. The chances are high that either your internet connection is having an unstable signal or the data speed is too low. In both scenarios, make sure to contact your ISP or the carrier support to get additional support.
3. Re-Enable Android System WebView
Google’s Android WebView is a pre-installed system component that basically allows Android apps to display web content properly. If there is an issue with the Android System WebView then make sure to follow the steps below.
- Go to the device Settings menu > Tap on Apps.
- Go to All apps > Scroll down to Android System WebView.
- Tap on Disable and confirm the popup.
- Just Enable the Android System WebView app again on the device to reset it.
4. Uninstall Android System WebView
You can also try uninstalling the Android System WebView app on your Android 13 device to cross-check the issue. To do so:
- Go to the device Settings menu > Tap on Apps > Select All apps.
- Head over to the app store page for Android System WebView (there should be a link from its settings page).
- Select Uninstall and hit Enable.
5. Update the problematic App
If you’re using an outdated application on your Android 13 handset then you should check for the app update by following the steps below.
- Open the Google Play Store app on the Android 13 device > Tap on the hamburger menu icon.
- Now, tap on My Apps & games > Ensure to check whether the problematic app update is showing on the list of the available updates or not.
- If so, just tap on the Update button next to the app and wait for it to install.
- Once done, make sure to open the problematic app, and check for the issue. [You can also restart your handset to refresh the system and app data]
6. Clear problematic App Cache Data
If in case, you’re using the problematic app from your Android smartphone or tablet device, then you can easily clear the app cache data from the settings menu to refresh the app cache. Sometimes an outdated or corrupted app cache data can also cause several issues whatsoever.
Note: There is no option to do this on iPhone. Only a simple restart will do the job.
- Go to the device Settings menu > Head over to Apps & Notifications.
- Now, tap on See All Apps > Head over to the problematic app under the App info section.
- Tap on the problematic app to open the app info page > Tap on Storage & Cache.
- Next, tap on Clear Cache > Once done, close the settings menu, and launch the problematic app again.
7. Clear the problematic App Storage Data
If only clearing out the app cache data doesn’t help you then make sure to clear the app storage data also. This method is also only applicable to Android devices.
- Go to the device Settings menu > Go to Apps & Notifications.
- Tap on See All Apps > Head over to the problematic under the App info section.
- Next, tap on the problematic app to open the app info page > Tap on Storage & Cache.
- Then tap on Clear Storage.
- Finally, launch the problematic app, and check for the issue again.
8. Force Stop and Re-open the problematic app
There may be another reason behind the startup crashing issue is that the problematic app or its services are already running in the background. In that scenario, you can manually perform a force stop of the app and relaunch the app to check if that fixes the issue or not. To do this:
- Go to the Settings menu on your Android device > Go to Apps & Notifications.
- Tap on See All Apps > Head over to the problematic app under the App info section.
- Next, tap on the problematic app to open the app info page > Tap on Force Stop.
- If prompted, just confirm the task.
- Once done, open the problematic app freshly, and check if that helps you or not.
9. Check for Free Storage Space
The chances are high that somehow your device storage becomes low on space which can eventually trigger multiple issues with the installed apps or games on the Android 13 device. Make sure to check for the free storage space and delete unused or duplicate files to increase the free storage. To do so:
- Tap on the device Settings menu > Tap on About Phone.
- Select the Storage option > Here you can check the Total Storage Space and Available Storage Space of the device.
- If the free storage space is low enough to install or run apps smoothly then make sure to uninstall/delete the unnecessary apps/files to fix the issue.
10. Check the App Permissions
If the Android 13 apps are crashing during startup or even while using them, make sure to allow app permissions from the App Info page to fix the issue. Without giving proper app permissions, your device may not run some apps. To give enough app permissions:
- Go to the device Settings menu > Tap on Apps.
- Tap on the problematic app that’s crashing on your Android 13.
- Tap on the App Permissions option from the App Info page.
- Make sure to grant permissions to the specific app whatever it requires.
11. Update your Android Software
If in case, you’re still using an outdated software build on your handset then make sure to check for the latest software updates by following the steps below. Even if you’re using Android 13, developers release periodic software updates like security patches or bug fixes, or stability improvements. So, it’s highly recommended to install the latest update always. To do so:
- Open the device Settings menu > Tap on About Phone.
- Tap on System Update (Software Update) > Tap on Check for Updates.
- If there is an update available, tap on the Download and Install option.
- Once the update is done, reboot your handset to apply changes.
12. Wipe Cache Partition
Well, clearing the cache partition on your device can help you to remove temporary glitches or cache data issues whatsoever. To do that:
- First of all, make sure to reboot your Android smartphone in stock recovery mode. [You can find out the steps online for your specific device model & brand]
- Once the device is rebooted into the stock recovery screen, you’ll be able to see the Wipe Cache Partition option.
- Press the Volume Up or Down button to navigate to the option and select the Power button to select the option.
- After completing the process, restart your phone to apply changes.
13. Reinstall the problematic App
If none of the methods worked for you then make sure to uninstall and reinstall the problematic app on your mobile. It’ll eventually delete all the saved app data and refresh the app data again which should fix the issue. To do so:
- Tap and hold the problematic app icon to bring the pop-up menu.
- Now, tap on Uninstall. [You can also go to App Info and select Uninstall]
- Once uninstalled completely, just reboot your mobile.
- Finally, go to the Google Play Store app > Search for the specific app and tap on Install.
14. Perform a Factory Reset
If none of the methods worked for you then make sure to perform a factory reset on your handset to check whether the problem has been fixed or not. Keep in mind that the factory reset process will delete the device data completely such as apps, games, user-defined settings, internal storage files, call history, text messages, etc. So, it’s better to take a full data backup of your device before jumping into the steps.
- Go to the device Settings menu > Tap on About Phone.
- Tap on the Backup & Reset option > Click on the Erase all data (Factory Reset) option.
- Now, tap on the Delete all data option > Wait for the process to be completed.
- Once done, your device will reboot to the system automatically.
- Finally, go through the initial setup process.
- You’re good to go.
