Instagram is one of the most popular social network and photo/video sharing app available for iOS. If you’ve used Instagram at some point, you’ll know that it doesn’t show you the exact timestamp when an image or a video was posted. You will only get a preview of the less informative timestamp, which only displays the time passed since an image or a video was posted. InstaRealDate is a new jailbreak tweak that gets rid of this issue.

InstaRealDate displays the exact and more informative timestamp of a media including the date (day, month & year) and time that it was posted. To view the more informative timestamp, you have to tap on the time located in the top right corner of every image/video and it displays the exact time and date that it was shared such as “8/16/14, 12:30 PM”…

Upon installing the tweak, no additional settings are required to configure. It will be enabled by default and all you have to do is launch the Instagram app and you’re good to go. It’s quite a useful tweak as you no longer have to guess when an image or a video was posted. It also works perfectly with the latest version (6.0.7) of Instagram without any issues.

If you’re interested to get your hands on InstaRealDate, download it from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free.

      You have to hold your finger over the time and it will switch. By default shows it the old way.

        I wish the Dev would have something in settings to just automatically show instead.

      • therealjjohnson

        Yeah, I agree. I thought is wasn’t working at first too.

    Why is Jeff not doing any youtube videos anymore. Can anyone tell me?

    • He’s busy working on a little project that you’ll know about soon enough.

      • firerock

        Yeah can’t wait! Thanks Seb

  • This should be by default in the app. Though I’m not worried on the exact date or time the image or video has been posted.

  • Marcus

    This is going to be like the first new jailbreak tweak I’ve gotten in months haha

  • MaybeYes

    So is it exact according to my local timezone or the posters’?

    You don’t have to jailbreak your phone. Get on Instagram on your computer and find the post you want the date for. Right click on the current timestamp for the post and click on inspect element. It then shows you coding and the highlighted part should contain the date.

    When I viewed a recent instagram photo. The date stamp was along the bottom of the photo written ” Photo taken by Rudy Valentino on July 4, 2016. (I am using a different name of course) Is this on all instagram photos. Is this the actual date it was taken or date it was posted.. Was having a debate about when a photo was taken.
