Swift Question

App crashing when launching from AppStore or TestFlight but working fine elseways

My application update has been rejected. Into the rejection message, they wrote "Application crashes at launch". I then tried my application but couldn't make it crash. So I used TestFlight and noticed that when I was launched my app from TestFlight or AppStore, it was crashing at launch. But if I launch my app normally, it does work without any crashes. The thing is this bug occurred since iOS 10 update. Now my application on store also crashes when launched from AppStore while it was working fine 2 weeks go.

Apple sent me a crash log:

There is 4 others threads but this one is the one crashing so I did not copy the rest. I did some research and even though I did notice my crash log wasn't fully translated (for some strange reason since I have all dsyms but whatever), I did manage to understand that I was crashing on line 217 (tell me if I'm wrong). I know that SIGTRAP are most of time NSExceptions being thrown. The line itself is:

let api = MyAppAPI.instance

The instance is a singleton. My guess is that something into the instance creation is failing. Here is the code:

static var instance: MyAppAPI = {
return Singleton.instance

class MyAppAPI: Manager {
struct Singleton {
static var configuration: NSURLSessionConfiguration = {
var configuration = NSURLSessionConfiguration.defaultSessionConfiguration()
let version = NSBundle.mainBundle().objectForInfoDictionaryKey("CFBundleShortVersionString") as? String ?? ""
configuration.HTTPAdditionalHeaders = [
"Accept": "application/vnd.MyApp.api+json, application/json;q=0.9",
"User-Agent": "MyApp iOS/\(version)",
"X-API-Version": "1.0.1"

return configuration

static var instance = MyAppAPI(configuration: configuration)
static var baseURL : NSURL! = nil

I'm so desperate about this error, I did try a few things that did not work out. Am I looking into the right place ? Is there anyone with a solution ? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. I'm willing to gift anyone that can find me the solution or help me find the solution !


I found the solution of my problem.

As expected it was coming from func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject: AnyObject]?) -> Bool

Inside the function I had let userInfo = launchOpts[UIApplicationLaunchOptionsRemoteNotificationKey] as! NSDictionary.

I changed it to let userInfo = launchOpts[UIApplicationLaunchOptionsRemoteNotificationKey] as? NSDictionary and then checked if userInfo != nil to make all the code running userInfointo the bracket.

If it helps anyone or if anyone is struggling with this issue, check all yours ! and swap these to ? if needed (on didFinishLaunchingWithOptions) since launching from TestFlight/AppStore seems to have different options than from installed application (just a guess, not pro enough to claim it).
