We have heard rumors that Instagram was  doing an update to its app. The wait over. The new redesign is not simply the app but the icon as well. The just released a major update to iPhone app is completely redesigned from the ground up today. It’s a pretty dramatic redesign but the new layout so far is universally praised by users. The new design is now available to all iPhone users.

 “Today we’re introducing a new look. You’ll see an updated icon and app design for Instagram. Inspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form” ~Instagram

We love the new layout. Instagram’s old look seemed out of date and didn’t fit with the clean look direction that iOS’s was heading. The modern design of iOS was in stark contrast to Instagram. The new icon is bold and does stand out from what was there before.  Here’s a video showcasing the new look as well as some new features:
