To mark its 10th birthday, Instagram has reintroduced its classic icons. The app launched in October 2010, and growing into a social networking giant over the course of its 10-year history.
Instagram developers have hidden an Easter Egg within the App that allows users to customise the app’s icon on their home screen into one of Instagram’s old logos. This includes, the very first pre-launch logo and the original Polaroid-style camera icon.
How can I get it? I hear you ask…
Head to the settings area on your app, and swipe down to reveal the hidden option.

Meanwhile, Instagram chief Adam Mosseri also wrote a blog post, in which he teased ‘major changes’ over the coming months.
“To keep pace with what’s next, we have to adapt, too,” he said.
“Instagram’s home was designed at a different moment. Over the coming months, you’ll see some major changes from us, like tabs for Reels and shopping, and some big improvements to messaging.
“We’ll look to accelerate ways for creators to make a living and for small businesses to sell their products.
“Through all these changes, our community will remain the heart of Instagram, and we’ll stay focused on keeping people safe and building new features that fight bullying, improve equity, address fairness, and help people feel supported.”
