The original story (published September 21, 2021) follows:
The popular social deduction game Among Us has been available on many platforms like Android and iOS since 2018. However, iPhone users have faced some issues with the game.
Just in case you’re trying to figure out why Among Us isn’t working on iPhone, take comfort in the fact that you’re not the only one experiencing issues lately.
A quick look at microblogging site Twitter shows that many are affected by the same issue on other platforms like Xbox. According to several reportswhile some say Among Us not working on iPhone, for others it keeps loading then brings them back to home screen.
For a quick look, here’s how some of the complainants frame the issue:
I’m trying to login to Among Us with Steam Play (a Windows compatibility layer for Linux/Mac) but all I get is a mini teammate that spins endlessly, is there a solution?
Those Xbox servers have been down for a long time, right…
For me it does not load on my iPhone. It just loads the three dots when I click search game or load game and it will load forever then bring me back to the home screen
I tried turning my iPhone on and off
Outage Detector – a popular service that provides live outage information – also indicates that the servers Among Us were indeed down, but the number of reports has now decreased, indicating that the problem may have been solved now.
However, Support Among Us has not commented on whether or not the issue has been resolved since they acknowledged it stating that their servers were down.
Although the issue may soon be resolved as Among Us is working on a fix, this is still based on speculation as game support has not provided any ETA for the fix.
