Fix “You’re using a version of snapchat” Error on iPhone in iOS 11


Ever since its release, Snapchat has a very strict policy for jailbreak tweaks. In an effort to block the jailbroken iOS devices, Snapchat introduces different checks.

The Snapchat Error

Snapchat is a popular messaging app, that allows people to send messages (photo, audio, video) that delete themselves very quickly after they are opened by the recipient. While the app leaves older users scratching their heads (why would you want to send a message that deletes itself?), younger users have pounced on this app and driven it to become a massive player in the social media market.

To handle its massive popularity, it is not surprise that the app releases updates. iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners find that after updating their iDevices to iOS 11, they are getting an error from the Snapchat app that reads:


“You’re using a version of Snapchat or operating system that’s no longer supported. Please upgrade your device’s operating system and update to the newest app version to use Snapchat. Thanks! ”.
