I don’t know about you, but I feel the number of ads inserted in Instagram’s feed is raising every week. I am almost at 1 out of 4. Finding their way into stories and maybe soon messages ?
Jeremy Keith pointed out a simple way of enjoying an ad free experience without giving up on any feature : save the progressive web app to your home screen.
The experience is near identical to the native app (no browser chrome), including double tap to love a post, etc.
Try the following,
- Open Instagram in Safari on your iPhone;
- Tap the share button at the bottom of the screen (the square with an arrow pointing up) and select “Add to Home Screen”;
- Return to the springboard and tap the new Instagram icon;
- Login and save your info, and voilà! No more ads inserted into your feed – bliss.

Please forgive the stumbling, I have sticky fingers today…
