How to Save Instagram Stories on Your iPhone

Instagram Stories was meant to be a space for temporary posts. But sometimes, people put up great content and you want to save and keep it. While the app doesn't officially let you do this, we'll show you how to easily save stories from Instagram to iPhone camera roll in this tutorial.

Instagram Stories was the biggest feature added to the app after it was acquired by Facebook. Stories provides a Snapchat-like function that lets users post a picture or video they’re doing at a given point of time, but temporarily. There are a whole host of apps out there designed to help you create great stories. What if you found a story that really speaks to you, and you want to save it to your camera roll? Even though the app doesn’t officially let you do it, it’s actually quite easy to download and save Instagram stories to your iPhone camera roll.

You just have to follow a couple of steps, which don’t even involve downloading external tools. Note that these steps will only allow you to save photo stories due to Safari’s limited download capabilities. However, you can follow the same steps on Mac or PC also to download video stories.
