The popular photo sharing app, Instagram, for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users can be more fun as it has rolled out specific features that support wide colour capture and display - and moreover users don't need to update the app.
Instagram had first announced a series of iPhone 7-specific features, including the wider colours and 'Live Photo' conversion to Boomerang, as well as a special colour filter, one-finger zoom on the iPhone 7 Plus, and instant access to the Instagram Stories camera with 3D touch, in September 2016 at the device's unveiling.
Users can also post GIFs to Instagram Stories even without capturing them on its stand-alone app Boomerang. Apple Live Photos can now be converted into Boomerangs.
If you're on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, Instagram now supports wide color capture and display throughout the app—writing an eng blog on it soon— Mike Krieger (@mikeyk) January 5, 2017
To turn a Live Photo into a Boomerang, first open the Instagram Stories camera, swipe up to upload something from your camera roll, and select one of your Live Photos shot in the last 24 hours. Then, while previewing it before you post, give a forceful 3D Touch to the screen, you will see a little loading wheel, and then the Live Photo will appear as a back-and-forth Boomerang which can be shared in your Story.
