The higher-resolution pictures are not yet being displayed as such by Instagram, which maintains its smaller default for now. But a quick check of the source code on Instagram’s web view reveals that new photos uploaded to it are being saved in 1080px resolution, likely in preparation to making a full and public switch to the greater size in the coming days or weeks. We have reached out to Instagram to find out more. The company’s last comments on the matter indicated that it neither uploads nor stores images at any greater resolution that its standard 640 x 640, so this is clearly a new development.
An Instagram spokesperson tells us that the company started “gradually rolling out 1080 across iOS and Android” last week, meaning that most people should already be seeing the higher-resolution images in the mobile app. Alas, Instagram on the desktop remains a second-class citizen, as Instagram says that “right now we are focused on mobile, with no plans to share on web.”
