The Instagram application is no longer works for smart watch Apple Watch . The latest Instagram update for iOS under the number 39.0 brings " general bug fixes and improved productivity " , but when it is secretly completely removes the application.
Why did it happen?
Most likely, this is due to watchOS 1 SDK, which Instagram used. FROM April, this version is considered obsolete, but in Instagram, it seems, decided not to switch to SDK watchOS 2 or later, and completely stop the application support for Apple Watch.
In this case, the smart clock will continue to show notifications from the main application.
A need the Instagram watch?
The Instagram social network became one of the the first applications for Apple Watch. But from Since then (2015), practically nothing in not for me changed: the application still requires smartphone, because not can use the wireless network or cellular modem of the watch itself. TO the on hours there is no camera for Selfie, and The screen is too small to be able to view the pictures.
Previously from Apple Watch has already refused Twitter, Slack, eBay, Amazon and Google Maps.
