How to undo the controversial 2018 Snapchat update on iPhone

How To Revert The Snapchat App Back To The Pre-Redesign Version

Here's why people are hating the new Snapchat update

The app still looks the same from outside but it splits into two sections one for friend's feed and another one for social content (most viewed stories), while the struggling part is when a user uploads his/her story, now the story icon is being displayed with profile bar.

James posted the step-by-step instructions on how to get the old Snapchat back on Twitter. With most apps, if you opt for the upgrade you're stuck with the new version until the developer puts out something new. But good news! There's a way to switch back to the old Snapchat, and we're gonna show you how do it.

Now, for the catch: A Snapchat spokesperson told Mashable that this workaround is only temporary.

Basically, you have to delete the app, turn off automatic updates for it, and then re-download it again. Once you do, log in and you'll be back to rocking the previous version. But at some point, you might need to quit the app (maybe your phone freezes or the app crashes) and then you'll be forced onto the new app.

Snapchat is getting a ton of hate this week for their new update, which has been slowly rolling out to users.

Reverting back to the old update also means you won't get the new features.

Moreover, not only teens but also celebrities have been criticizing new updated version of Snapchat including Kylie Jenner, Amber Frank, Chrissy Teigen and many more. If you want to hang onto those, go into the Settings menu of Snapchat followed by Memories and the Backup Progress to make sure you have everything. Naturally, people are wondering if it's possible to get the old Snapchat back, and while it's indeed possible right now, it's a hassle.
