How to share to Instagram from the Photos app

Yesterday we got a surprise in our Instagram update, along with bug fixes we finally got the ability to share photos via an extension within the iOS Photos app.

There are some limitations E.g. you can't share to other social networks so if you always post to Twitter from Instagram you will be out of luck for now.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Open Photos
  2. Select the image you want to share
  3. Tap the share icon
  4. Scroll across to Instagram
