One of the missing features that Instagram users (on the iPhone) complain about is the facility to save photos from the Instagram feed. The official Instagram app does not let you “save” pictures to your Camera roll (that’s a policy issue).
Earlier, the only option was to Jailbreak your device and save Instagram photos/videos using SaveGram Cydia tweak. But now apps like SaveGram and InstaSave do the job. Hence, we have updated this information with one more way, i.e. without Jailbreaking the device, to save Instagram photos on iPhone camera roll. Since, SaveGram is a better option (and a popular one), here we will show the SaveGram way to save Instagram photos.
SaveGram, though requires log in/password to Instagram, easily saves photos on your iPhone. While InstaSave, which doesn’t require log in/password to your Instagram account, takes more time to save photos. Moreover, the photos saved on your iPhone by using InstaSave will show the app logo and Instagram ID of the person from whose feed you have saved the photo.
