Instagram lets you add up to 10 photos for a single post using the “Select Multiple” feature while choosing photos. This feature has disappeared from the Instagram app on iOS. What earlier seemed to be a deliberate removal of the feature is actually a bug in the iOS app, Instagram clarified. It’s currently working on a fix for the bug that has occurred in the latest update of the Instagram app on iOS.

Instagram announced on Twitter saying that some users on iOS may have trouble accessing the Select Multiple feature for the carousel post. Android users aren’t affected as the option is visible on the Instagram app. The change has left some users confused, and also convinced that Instagram has removed the feature. This isn’t surprising since Instagram usually makes changes to its app which mostly disappoints users. While Instagram works on a fix, iOS users can follow these steps to share multiple photos in a post.

Press on the ‘+’ icon to share a post on your Instagram account.

Tap on the photo icon to select the photos you wish to share.

Once you’re in the correct album, long press and hold the first photo you want to share.

Then you’ll see the number 1 appearing on the selected photo.

You can then select the other photos you wish to add in your carousel.

Once you’re done selecting the photos, you can follow the same process to upload them.

The same process can be followed by Android users to select multiple photos for a single post. But there’s really no need since the icon for this feature sits just above the photos. Instagram is yet to update on when it rolls out a fix for iOS users.
