How to Zoom on iPhone

The Instagram Trick You Never Knew Existed

How many times have you stopped on a friend's Instagram photo and wished you could zoom in? Using a simple iOS feature, the folks at OSXDaily reminded us that it actually can be done. Here's the deal: on your phone's Settings app, click on "General" and then hit "Accessibility." Find the zoom setting and turn it on. Open Instagram, and, using three fingers, double tap a photo to zoom in.

Easy, no? If you swipe up with the three fingers, you can zoom in further; swipe down and you'll zoom out. You can also move around the photo using three fingers.

Now you can inspect all those awesome Instagram hashtags even further. Even better, use the feature on other zoom-less apps like Vine and Youtube. Magic!
