For some reason my iCloud has not been working for the past few days. I’ve not been able to post to the NewInZurich Instagram account from my iPhone as the photos won’t download properly from iCloud and I can’t even edit them on the phone as I just get an error message saying “Cannot Load Photo”.

As it’s the Christmas holidays in Zurich I’ve put off going into town or calling the Apple helpline fearing long waits and queues. Having googled the problem I still haven’t come across a remedy.

However, one thing I have discovered is how to upload a photo to Instagram from your laptop. You may already know about this work around – but for me it’s new and hopefully this may help someone else too! Apparently it’s a way of “tricking” the website into thinking it’s a mobile device – but I’ve just tried it out on Safari and it definitely works!

On your laptop or desktop you simply open Safari. At the top you click on “Preferences” then you choose “Advanced”. Now tick the little box at the bottom of the options that says the “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”

Next you need to open a new Safari window but this time instead of simply opening “New Window” you open the option below which is “New private window”. Along the top bar click on “Develop” then go to “User Agent”  then choose “Safari — iOS 10 — iPhone”.

Now you simply to go to Instagram.com, and sign in with your password. There is a + camera button at the bottom of the screen so click on this and upload a photo from your laptop. Et voilà!
