Instagram is a nice platform to share your amazing photos and videos. It’s been a hot recipe for my free time for quite some time. I have got a lot of friends whose shots I never fail to catch up. However, there are a few friends whose stories I hate to see.
Fortunately, there is a way to mute any friend’s stories in Instagram. Once you have muted the stories of any person, they won’t appear in the carousel of stories chronologically. The muted stories will be displayed at the end; even if they are most recent. It’s a perfect way to avoid seeing stories from any user.
How to Mute or Unmute Stories from Instagram Users on iPhone/iPad

Step #2. Next, you will have to find the person whose stories you want to mute at the top of the Instagram feed.
Step #3. Once you have selected the person, simply tap and hold on his/her profile icon → Now, you will get three options-

- Mute “X’s” Story
You need to tap on Mute Story.
That’s it! The profile icon of the person you have just blocked will turn gray.
