Once you have posted a video or photo on your Instagram account, it will then automatically appear on your news feed just like other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

This platform is also used by those who are what we called influencers to get more audience from this social media sites. Some use this application to follow certain celebrities that they love for them to become updated. For those iPhone or any iOS users, Instagram is one of the top social media sites that they have installed on their devices.
Because iPhone or iOS devices have new features when it comes to its camera, people who use Instagram tend to take more pictures and post it on their news feed. We also receive notification on our iOS devices for any new followers, new update on the people we follow, or even if we get messages from other people that are connected to us on Instagram.

One possible cause of this is when you have upgraded your iOS system. Well, we have gathered some solutions that you can do for you to be able to get notifications again from Instagram on your iOS device.

FIX 1: RESTART YOUR DEVICE

Clearly, there is no better way for you to fix any iOS issues than to have your device restarted. For you to be able to do this, just go ahead and press and hold the power button of your device for a couple of seconds until you see a message on your screen that says "Slide to Power Off".

Once you see that messages on your screen, go ahead and slide the slider from left to right to turn off your device. Once that your device is fully turned off wait for a minute or two and turn it back on again by pressing and holding the power button again and then release it once you see the Apple logo on your screen.

FIX 2: SEE IF YOUR DEVICE IS IN SILENT MODE

If you did turn your device into silent mode, then there is a great chance that you will not receive any push notifications on your device. Because of this, all you need to do is to toggle the switch on the side of your device for you to get out in Silent Mode.

FIX 3: DO AN UPDATE ON YOUR DEVICE

Since Apple is always releasing a new software update for all their users, then you might want to try updating your device as well.

FIX 4: CHECK IF "DO NOT DISTURB" IS ENABLED

DND or Do Not Disturb is actually one of the best features that your device have. If DND is enabled on your device, you will not be able to receive any notifications and calls. There are instances that this feature is unknowingly enabled on your device which causes you not to receive any notification from your Instagram.

If you happen to see a moon type icon at the top of your screen, then that means that this feature is enabled. To turn this off, just go to your Settings and then tap on Do Not Disturb, and then hit the OFF button beside it.

FIX 5: CHECK YOUR APP NOTIFICATION

There is also another way for you to check your App notification. There are times that notifications for certain apps like your Instagram are actually muted and if so, then you really won't be able to receive any notifications. Try to check this by going to your Settings, and then choose Notifications. You will then be able to see all your Apps that have an indication if the notification is enabled, From here, just go ahead and tap on Instagram App and then turn on "Allow Notification".

FIX 6: MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE CONNECTED ON A STABLE CONNECTION
