Instagram has taken a little more time to evolve than all other leading social media platforms. Instagram still holds on to its old camera icon even after a large section of users said 'no' to skeuomorphism. Signs of improvement are clearly visible with the instagram app. Latest Instagram screenshots show how the platform is relying on the classic black and white theme over its aesthetic theme combining orange and blue.
The latest design of the Instagram app depicts its redesigned icons amid an extended use of white space. The camera icon has even emerged from its earlier image projecting a circle inside a square to something that looks more similar to a camera. The new icon even replaces the old heart within the dialog bubble by a heart representing the feed bearing notifications.
