Instagram Stories is a new feature that allows you to post more than you normally would.
These photos and videos will be compiled as a slideshow for your followers to see.
Just like Snapchat Stories, there are limitations to Instagram Stories. And we are here to help you break it.
If you haven’t noticed, there is a blog post on how to enhance and cut most restrictions on Snapchat using Cydia tweaks.
Guess what? This article is going to be somewhat similar but for Instagram Stories. While this functionality already lets you select & upload photos and videos from your album, it’s limited the one that was taken in the past 24 hours.
In other words, any photos older than a day will not be accepted.
Removing Instagram Stories 24 Hours Limit
Damn, what if you forgot to upload that super dope picture before the expiration time?
In case you missed the opportunity to show them on your Instagram Stories.
Here is a solution to fix that.
LongStories is a new jailbreak tweak that bypass 24-hours limit while selecting media from a gallery. For example, you want to post a #tbt from months ago to your Instagram Stories; now you can do so.
You can install this tweak from the BigBoss repo and get started right away. It should work upon Respring.
So far, this is the only Cydia tweak for Instagram Stories. If you want to check out more packages for the official app, see this list.
How to Upload Photos from your Camera Roll
As a new user, I didn’t know where to upload my photos from the Camera Roll to Instagram Stories.
It turned out that you have to swipe down from the camera. This will pull up any photos that you’ve taken. Select one or as much as you want and start uploading.
