Instagram how to manage filters iPhone screenshot 001

With 40+ filters to choose from, Instagram’s gone a long way since its humble beginnings.

As is becoming a tradition, Apple CEO Tim Cook stopped by the Palo Alto Apple Store close to Apple’s Campus today to meet and greet folks buying up Apple’s latest releases, the iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7.
