Voila! Your photos and videos will be posted with the utmost quality possible. This step-by-step guide is tailored for iPhone users, but fear not, Android users can also find this setting in their Instagram app.

The mysterious decision to keep this setting off by default remains unknown. Presumably, it aims to save bandwidth and expedite the posting experience. Keep in mind that enabling HD uploads may consume more network bandwidth and cellular data, leading to slightly longer upload times. For avid users craving top-notch visuals, the trade-off is often worthwhile. However, if you’re bandwidth-conscious, you might want to weigh the benefits against the data usage.

As a bonus, there’s an additional option to “Disable HDR Video Playback” for users bothered by Instagram videos altering screen brightness. For now, our focus remains on the media quality setting, a key to transforming your Instagram feed into a high-definition haven.
