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.
How to Download Stories from Instagram to iPhone Camera Roll
Step #1. Open Instaview.me homepage in Safari on iPhone.
Step #2. Now, Open your Instagram Profile on iPhone.
Step #3. Tap on the search and look for a public profile. You’ll see a list of the stories they’ve posted. It’s important to note that the save function will only work with users who have public profiles and public stories.
Step #4. Go back to Instaview and enter the user’s username in the search box, then click Download Now below to their profile.
Step #5. Select Download Now to see the available stories to download below. Keep scrolling to view all stories.
Step #6. Tap on Download Now immediately below a given story. It will open it up as an image in a new tab.
Step #7. Long press on the image, then tap on Add to Photos to download it.
That’s all there is to it. If you’ve followed this guide correctly, you should have been able to download and save an Instagram story from a public profile user. Keep it for yourself in the camera roll or do an actual repost. That’s up to you.
