A programmer named Ishan Agarwal, discovered an image hidden within Instagram’s code. This image contains a potential new Instagram feature! The image shows a portrait mode that is currently not available to Instagram’s users.
If this feature does end up getting released, it could be used to enhance photos through blurred backgrounds and offer new lighting options. iPhone x users, such as myself, would feel much less special if this is released.
For some of us, myself included, this doesn’t mean much. For some people it’s going to be a way to upgrade their Instagram game without needing to invest in new equipment.
Does Instagram have a portrait mode?
The answer to this question is still no. However, based on what we now know, it appears that in the near future we will have an Instagram portrait mode!
