Instagram is the world’s number one photo-sharing platform, with hundreds of millions of users worldwide. With Instagram, you can post your photos or videos to your feed. However, Instagram is now a bigger deal than you think as you can do a lot more things with it. One such thing lies in the ability to start a live video.
In reality, the video-streaming feature is not something new out there as it has been part of Facebook for years. However, it may help Instagram boost its adoption worldwide. Instagram gets new updates every year and is expected to stand in line with Facebook. Reports claim that Instagram now has over one billion users in the world, making it one of the most popular social networks.
Instagram has seen steady growth in recent years. In September 2017, Instagram hit more than 800 million users worldwide. Sources say that the company has been working on new features for Instagram, but it remains unknown when we are seeing them. Instagram now has its own apps on multiple platforms. Instagram for iOS gets smarter and more useful as well as supports a wide range of iPhone devices. However, in the latest update, Instagram no longer includes support for iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. It remains unclear why Instagram removes support for Apple’s latest models.
Sources say that Instagram is struggling to make its app compatible with the bigger screens on the XS Max and XR. Therefore, the company has decided to drop support for the latest iPhones. However, Instagram has not made any statements regarding the recent update. Tech experts say that Instagram app will support the XS Max and XR next month.
For some background, the XS Max is the biggest iPhone ever made, but a lot of apps are not optimized for the XS Max. Apple is encouraging developers to update their apps to fully support the XS Max. The iPhone XS Max and XS are now seeing a slow sales performance on the market. Apple is bringing both devices to more markets in the first quarter of the year. Besides, Apple is reportedly resuming production of older iPhones due to low XS and XR sales.
Rumors say that 2019 iPhones will come with tons of new things, one of which includes an in-display fingerprint scanner. Apple was previously rumored to use a fingerprint scanner that works under the display, but it was nowhere to be found.
