How to Mute or Unmute Stories in Instagram on iPhone and iPad

Want to avoid seeing the stories from Instagram users? Follow this simple guide to mute/unmute stories from specific Instagram users on your iPhone or iPad.

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.
