How to install Instagram (the official application) on iPad Mini, iPad Pro, iPad Air

By default, the application InstagramDeveloped by Facebook for mobile devices, smartphones and iPhone, no 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 own iPhone and iPad, you'll notice that the simple word on the iPhone, the word "Instagram" in App Store, the official Instagram application appears first and can be installed without problems. We do a similar search on the iPad and there will be several applications for Instagram in the App Store, but not the official one.
There is, however, a very simple solution through which we can install Instagram on the iPad.

How to install Instagram (the official application) on iPad Mini, iPad Pro, iPad Air

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

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

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

In this way, we will be asked to list results with iPhone compatible applications.

3. After selecting "iPhone Only", the first application listed in the results will be the official Instagram. Click to install.

Once the installation of Instagram on the iPad is completed, you will log in and use the application at full capacity, as if it were on the iPhone.

There is, however, a problem. Being an iPhone app, it is not optimized for the much larger 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 can install on iPad Mini, iPad Pro or iPad Air several applications dedicated to iPhone devices.

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