Instagram launched ten years back today: the photograph sharing application initially hit the App Store on October sixth, 2010, a couple of months after the arrival of the iPhone 4. To observe, Instagram has added an easter egg to the application that lets you change its home screen symbol.
The symbols accessible incorporate the exemplary Polaroid-style camera plans that were utilized for over five years. There are themed minor departure from the current logo, as well, including Pride rainbow hues and monochrome choices. The application update likewise incorporates another component: a private guide and document of your accounts from the previous three years.
To get to the new symbols, go to the settings inside the application and do a long swipe down on the screen to uncover some emoticon. When you’ve swiped down far enough, the symbols will be opened and you’ll see a message from Instagram.

The icons Easter egg still appears to be in the process of rolling out — I’ve got it to work on a couple of phones, but some don’t have it yet.
It sounds like the icons will only be available during October. Instagram’s message reads “this month we’re inviting you to change your app icon to your favorite,” so don’t get too attached.
