Instagram is one of the newer social media networks on the scene. Since Instagram launched 8 years ago, it has grown to be one of the most popular social networking apps in the world. With over 500 million videos and images shared each day. There’s no doubt been times where you’ve come across some media that you want to save on your device. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t have a native option for downloading videos, but we’ve come up with a detailed process below that will allow you to save any Instagram video and photo to your iPhone.
An advantage to the method described below is that you’re iPhone doesn’t need jailbreaking. Factory set iPhones are very secure and don’t have many capabilities that Android phones have. Jailbreaking allows the phone owner to alter the files on their phone, allowing them to install third-party apps that aren’t available on the app store. The jailbreaking process is somewhat complicated and often voids the warranty on your phone, so it’s definitely a bonus that you can download media off Instagram without doing so.
If you want to download and save images and videos off Instagram to your iPhone, then follow the steps below.
1. You will want to start by download the “Documents” app from the official Apple App Store. The “Documents” app is a key part of downloading and saving media from Instagram to your iPhone. The app works as a central hub for all your files and allows you to manage them from the internet.
2. Once you’ve installed the application, head over to Instagram via the App or by browser. Go to the Instagram post which you’d like to save to your Ipad or Iphone. In order to do so, click on the three dots in the top right corner of the post and click “Copy URL”, which will copy the Instagram posts URL to the clipboard of your phone.
3. For the next step of the process, you’ll need to open the app that you downloaded in the first step and navigate to instaoffline.net. Paste the URL that you copied in step two into the field on the homepage and tap on the “Download” button to start the process. Once the media is processed, a download link will appear allowing you to save the files to your iPhone.
You should now have successfully saved the Instagram video or Image to your iPhone. You’ll be able to access the content by visiting the camera roll app.
Instagram is a fantastic app for sharing beautiful photos of your day to day life with your friends and family. It’s also a great way to discover new things and connect people with the same interests as you. Following the process we outlined above will allow you to save those hilarious videos and eye-catching pictures to view at a later date.
