How to install Instagram on iPad?

If possible! You can download Instagram, without the need for the App Store, on iPad.

Something that has not happened so far is having the Instagram app on the iPad, at least downloaded from the AppStore. It seems quite strange that such a popular app has not been released for a tablet, so users need to use the browser to check their photos or the stories of their contacts.

But this seems to be solved, at least temporarily, since it is possible to have Instagram on the iPad, officially and without using the application store. Do you want to know how to do it?

First of all, what are web applications?

Web applications were quite common when users jailbreaked their devices. It was a direct download from the browser and without the need to use the official Apple application store.

In other words, it is not necessary to install a native version of the application, but with the advantage that all the functions can be used, since the applications are usually official. In fact, you will see the icon as if you had downloaded it.

Of course, there are some very important disadvantages such as that you may not be able to use functions such as Face ID or Touch ID, payments within the application and even Bluetooth.

How do I add Instagram to my iPad

The first thing you should know is that you need iOS 11.3 or higher to be able to download applications from a browser. In addition, this process has to be done from Safari, and is done as follows:

  1. Open your Safari on the iPad.
  2. In the browser, visit the Instagram website
  3. Now choose the ‘Share’ option, which is the box icon with an arrow.
  4. Then choose the ‘add to home screen’ option.
  5. Write the name of the application, which in this case is ‘Instagram’.
  6. And ready! The app icon will appear on your home screen.
  7. By the way, if you want to delete the app, it’s done in a similar way to an app (long press on the icon).

In this way, you will be able to use the new technologies of the app, such as the new Instagram notes and interactive GIFs. This temporary solution can support you to avoid daily logging into Safari and going to the web.
