All of my iPhone 4S Non-Preloaded apps have been crashing upon their startup. The titlescreen for the app appears and then it just cuts back to the iPhone launch sreen. The iPhone then shows the app is running but clicking the app icon does nothing after the intial app startup. I have iOS 6.0.1 and all apps are up to date. I have restarted, reset, and restored my iPod and the problem continues. I have also tried deleting and downloading the app again.


The phone has been treated with great care. No recent accidents could have caused this.


I doubt Apple will let me trade it in and I can't update for another year, so switching up would be very expensive.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you.

    Try downloading any free app to resync your iTunes account.

    Downloading an app usually solves this particualr problem.  Since not, standard troubleshooting...


    Try a reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.


    Try clearing your recently used apps...

    - From any Home Screen, double tap the home button to bring up the Recents List

    - Tap and hold any icon until they wiggle

    - Press the red to delete apps from this list.

    - Press the home button twice when done.

    - Restart the app(s)


    If still a problem restore with your backup.


    If still a problem restore as new, i.e. without your backup. See how it runs with nothing synced to it.


    If still a problem, it's likely a hardware issue.
