Facebook soon submitted a new version to replace the bugged one
Facebook came up with a new update for its Messenger app for the iOS users that has led to the widespread crashing of the app. The bugged update has made the app to crash regularly, and if you switch to some other app and come back to Messenger app, its getting faded to black and crashing to the iPhone home screen. While some users are facing the same issue when trying to tap on the notification.
Later, Facebook acknowledged the issue and said, it was working on the same. The Facebook tweet read, “We're aware of the issue, and we're working on a fix." As reported, the buggy release is Version 170.0, and for the time being, Facebook has submitted a fix (170.1) to Apple.
Although the app once opened, is working fine and one can even chat with their friends. The issue is encountered only while launching the app.
Many of the iOS users took it to Twitter and reported the issue by tagging the Facebook in their tweet.

Hi @facebook. What’s wrong with Messenger for iOS? It keeps crashing.— Tonyo Cruz (@tonyocruz) June 15, 2018
P.S. My app is updated.
For the time being, you can avoid updating your Facebook Messenger app version that has been reported, and if installed, you can uninstall it immediately. Users who have not upgraded to the bugged Facebook Messenger version, appear not to have any reported issue.
