Instagram 3.1: iPhone 5 Compatibility and Better Account Recovery
You can now use Facebook to regain access to your Instagram account.
Instagram for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 is now available! With our latest update, version 3.1, we’ve made the application compatible with iOS 6 and the new iPhone 5. We’ve also redesigned the user sign up flow for all users and improved password recovery to make sure you never get locked out of your Instagram account. This new version of the application will be available for Android soon.
If you ever forget your Instagram password or username, simply tap the “Forgot Password?” link on the sign-in page. You can reset your password from the app by entering your username or email, and we’ll send you an email with more instructions.
Alternatively, if you had previously connected your Facebook account with your Instagram account, just tap “Reset using Facebook.” We’ll find the Instagram account connected to the Facebook account you’re logged into and let you reset your Instagram password. We hope this makes it easier for you to regain access to your account even if you’ve forgotten or mistyped the email address associated with it.
We’ve redesigned mobile photo pages! Our new mobile photo pages have a look and feel consistent with the web-based photo pages and make it easier for your friends to interact with your photos when viewing them outside of Instagram on their mobile device.
When logged in, your friends can like and comment on your photos directly from their mobile web browser. They can also go directly from the mobile photo page into Instagram. Clicking on the Open in App button will automatically launch the Instagram app with the photo loaded into the main view. From there, users can navigate into your profile page and explore the rest of your photo feed.
