How can we install Instagram (the official application) on iPad mini, iPad Pro iPad Air

By default, the application InstagramDeveloped by Facebook for mobile devices, smartphones and iPhonenot can be installed on the iPad. The reason is as simple as possible. Instagram is designed as an application to upload to photos and videos short made with your mobile phone. Besides, we can not upload pictures on Instagram from the laptop.

If you are the owner of iPhone and iPad, you will notice that with a simple search on iPhone, of the word "Instagram"In App Store, the official Instagram application appears first and can be installed without problems. We do a similar search on iPad and they will appear to us in App Store more applications for Instagram, but not the official one.
However, there is a very simple solution by which we can install Instagram on the iPad.

How can we install Instagram (the official application) on iPad mini, iPad Pro iPad Air

1. open App Store on the iPad, and in the "search" bar type "Instagram".

Search Instagram iPad

As I said above, the official list will not appear in the results list.

2. In the options bar from App Store, we click on "iPad Only", Then in the menu that opens select:"iPhone Only".

iPhone Instagram

In this way we will ask to list the results with compatible applications for iPhone.

3. After selecting “iPhone Only ”, the first application listed in the results will be the official Instagram one. Click for installation.

Once the installation of Instagram on the iPad is complete, you log in and you can use the application to its maximum capacity, as if it were on iPhone.

There is, however, a problem. Being an application for iPhone, this is not optimized for the much larger sizes of iPad displays.
You can use the application in two resolutions. 1x - the real one, in which the application will be visible only on a small part in the center of the screen and 2x - double size. All you have to do is press 1x or 2x from the bottom right corner.

In the same way you will be able to install on iPad mini, iPad Pro or iPad Air more applications dedicated to devices iPhone.

    • If you have the latest iOS version installed on iPad Air, everything should be the same as the iPad Mini. I don't know there is a difference in the App Store between Air and Mini.

  • The problem of installing Instagram on iPad is that the application does not roll on the web…. Hair less in mine iPad 9.7 no. I found a very simple solution!
    Just access the Instagram account in the Safari Browser and then click on the top right side, the first symbol on the left. There you have the option “Screen”… and Soon, problem solved! In case anyone has had this difficulty like me, here is the solution… 🙂
