Instagram Confirms It’s Phasing Out Live Filters On iOS, But There Is A Workaround… For Now


Instagram looks good on iPhone 5, but there's something missing.

As we reported on Tuesday, Instagram has updated its iOS app to introduce support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6. It’s a welcome update to those enjoying a new 4-inch display, but it’s not all good news: Instagram also pulled live filters from the iPhone 5. It has since confirmed that live filters will soon be phased out of the iOS app completely, but for now, there is a workaround for those who miss them.
