But for the people who make use of the iPad in their day to day life, it is kind of disappointing news as there is no official app present that can be used on tablets.

Apart from that Instagram has officially released a reason explaining that they aim to primarily focus on the app build-up for smartphones. This includes both Android as well as Apple Phones. Maybe in the future, the company would consider launching a dedicated Instagram app for iPads too but I doubt it will happen any time soon. In such a situation there are some alternative ways that people with iPads can make use of. So, if you are someone belonging to that group that I would love to inform you that you are in the correct place as in today’s article we are going to discuss a few of the alternative ways through which the Instagram app can be used on an iPad. Considering that, let me start the list without wasting any more time further.

#1. iPhone Instagram App on iPad:

The first method that I am going to explain is widely used by a lot of people. This will even provide an 80% solution to the problem. Over here I am going to show you the way through which you can download the iPhone version of Instagram on your respective iPad. This is more like a trick that has worked for almost everyone if done right. This trick has been used by a lot of other apps too which do not have counterparts. Few issues come along with this very method but there is nothing scary about it. One of the most common issues encountered is the smaller resolution size that is like an iPhone being opened in an iPad.

#2. Instagram Online for iPad:

Now moving to the next method in which the online version of Instagram can be used. Well, this is quite a simple method and that is the reason it’s my favourite one. In this method, there is no workaround and this works in almost all possible devices available. Over here you are required to visit the official page of Instagram then log in over there using your credentials and now there is no worry to download any sought of the app at all. However, you may encounter a few downsides while using this method and many times the page would ask you to choose an app rather than the web. One of the main problems here is that you will not be able to take any photos as well as upload them while using this online version. But still, people use it as something better than nothing. In general, over the online version, the options are limited on how you use Instagram normally. But if you do not mind not being able to click or upload photos then this is the best way available to you.
