It has been further mentioned that the issue will be fixed in the next update. However, Niantic has not specified when the new update will roll out. Pokemon Go trainers on iOS are unhappy with Niantic as it took a week for them to acknowledge the issue.

One of the trainer with the name, PuggMonster said that this is totally unacceptable, as all Apple users have to wait for over a week to run the app without crashing. On the other hand, other apps patch the issue within a day or two. Have a look at his statement down below.
