Luckily, here we’ve shared a couple of possible workarounds for you to easily fix this specific issue. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into it.

Updating the system can also help the device to apps or services properly. Go to the Settings menu on the handset > Go to Software Update > Select Check for Updates. If there is an update available, you should install the update.

3. Update Blue Archive

If you’re still running the outdated Blue Archive game on your mobile device then it may cause compatibility issues. To simply update the app:

For Android:

  • 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 Blue Archive game, and check for the issue. [You can also restart your handset to refresh the system and app data]
