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 an iPhone and iPad, you will notice that a simple search 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 several applications for Instagram will appear in the App Store, but not the official one.
However, there is 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 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 options bar of the App Store, click on "iPad Only", Then in the menu that opens 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 for installation.

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

  • The problem with installing Instagram on the iPad is that the app doesn't roll on the web. Hair less on my 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… 🙂
