Most people who have complained about the issue come from iPhone users but the feature hasn’t actually disappeared.

All you have to do when uploading multiple photos is to press and hold down on the picture in order to select more.

This is an option that Instagram had for some time but several users have reported that the app has removed the ‘Select Multiple’ button without receiving any notifications.

The Verge has reported that according to a Facebook company spokesperson, the issue with the carousel feature on iOS devices is attributable to a bug: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing the ‘Select Multiple’ photos feature in Instagram due to a bug in the latest iOS update and are working on a solution.”

Users react to the change

It’s safe to say that many Instagram users felt frustrated about the change and took to Twitter to look for an explanation.

“Instagram won’t let me do multiple pictures for a post and I’m annoyed about it,” reacted one person.

“Instagram won’t let me post multiple pictures and that’s really irritating me,” said another one.

“I updated my Instagram and now there is no option to post multiple pictures,” added someone else.

But it’s worth noting that there are a lot of people who have figured out the way to upload multiple pictures now and helped other users.
