If you have a Jailbroken iPhone then you need not heed this news.
Finally, Instagram is giving us the feature that we have been waiting for – we can now finally zoom in on a post.

Instagram notes that this cool feature is coming first in the iOS today. You just need to simply pinch on an image or video and you’re zoomed in. You can do it everywhere including your feed, profiles and posts in the Explore page.
Instagram has always been more of a sharing social media rather than being technical hence the feature was not in the radar for a long time. But with smartphones getting even more better in terms of screen quality and resolution, it’s a much needed and appreciated change.
As for Android, the zoom feature has not yet been announced but we can expect it in the coming weeks. For now, head on to your iOS App Store and update your Instagram to enjoy this.
