Instagram releases update for its app for iOS 7 with minor redesign

Instagram has just released of an update for its app for iOS 7.

Instagram says that they had to rebuild the look and feel of their app for iOS 7.

Here’s what Instagram has to say about the new update for iOS 7 on their blog:

We put the community—and the photos and videos you share—first. To bring you the best experience possible, we have always valued beauty and simplicity in our app. With the introduction of iOS 7 and its emphasis on clarity, we were excited to rebuild the look and feel of Instagram in a way that would bring these principles together and let the moments this community captures and shares shine.

Instagram 4.2 for iOS 7 includes the following changes:

  • The size of the photos and videos has been increased so that they can expand to the edge of the screen, which has also resulted in the increased resolution of the photos and videos.
  • The grid view has also been tweaked for slightly larger thumbnails.
  • The profile pictures are now circular to go along with iOS 7 Contact pics.

It looks like Instagram has forgotten to update the icon.

You can download the update for free using this direct iTunes link or via the Updates tab in the App Store app.
