Instagram updated for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6

Instagram has finally been updated for iOS 6, and more importantly, the app has been updated to take advantage of the 4 inches of screen real estate the iPhone 5 has to offer.

Besides the few bug fixes that you might not even notice, the big changes come to the photo uploader and filters. iPhone 5 users will appreciate that the filters don’t overlap on the photo anymore, leaving you plenty of space to see what your photo will actually look like…

According to the official changelog, this update brings the following new features:

  • iOS 6 and iPhone 5 compatible
  • Improved password recovery
  • Redesigned registration flow
  • Bug fixes and other improvements

Instagram is still a free download from the App Store. And while we’re at it, don’t forget to follow me @SebastienPage on Instagram, and tag your Apple-related photos with the #iDownloadBlog hastag.
