Otherwise, you can check on a website like Down Detector, which will let you know if there’s a problem with Facebook. If there is, there’s nothing you can do but wait it out.

Close and reopen the app

Is Facebook not working only on your iPhone 14? Then you have to start looking at possible local issues. Sometimes apps can go out of whack, and something as simple as closing the app or website, and reopening it, might fix the problem. It may also help to log out of Facebook and log back in. This should resync everything and move the cogs back into place.

How to Force close the Facebook app on iPhone

  1. Press and hold the side button and either of the volume buttons.
  2. Drag the power of slider from left to right.

Check your internet connection

If it isn’t, chances are you’re having internet issues. Those operating over Wi-Fi or LAN can check the router and see if it’s connected to the internet. You should probably try restarting the router too.

If you’re using cellular data, you might want to see if your data connection is on:

iPhone 14 Not able to upload photos on Facebook?

If this doesn’t work, it may be a format issue caused by photo editing. Try uploading the original photo and see if that works. If it does, go back to your editing software and export the image in a supported format. These include JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, and RIFF files. Large image files can also cause hiccups.
