Instagram can take photos and video and add filters that make them look dated, but nothing was more dated than the fact it didn't support landscape mode.
That changes today thanks to the online photo and video sharing app's so far iOS-only update featuring landscape orientation.
Sure, Instagram could always capture square-shaped photos and included a rotation function in post, but now flipping an Apple device sideways will cause the photo and menu to follow be oriented properly.
Cinema mode for front-facing cameras
Today's Instagram update also adds cinema mode to video shot using a front-facing camera.
Android users will have to wait, whether it's turning photos and videos sideways from the start or switching cinema mode-enabled video from the back camera to the front camera.
