How to Save Instagram Post as a Draft on iPhone

If you ever have to quit Instagram while posting any photo or video, you can easily save it as a draft so that you won't need to write the caption or add location all over again.

It’s really cool to post photos and videos on Instagram. With several filtering as well as editing options available, you can quickly give your image a nice look.

Personally, I love to share a lot of bone-trickling clips on this social networking app. As it allows saving the half-finished post, I don’t have to worry about writing a caption or adding location again if I had to leave the app mid-way. Hence, I can keep myself at pace with Instagram even during the hectic work schedule. Would you like to see how it works? Let’s go!
