On the iphone XS max it went back to the zoomed scale instead of the optomized after the latest instagram update. Can anyone report a similar issue?

Wondering if anyone else notices the same thing, but the latest Instagram update version 75.0 seems to be going backwards and removes XS Max support. Now the app looks stretched again on XS Max.

but it was before so must have been built with latest they just screwed up

Yeah something has changed in their build process. Who knows?! But yeah this is a piss easy fix. Just rebuild and resubmit and then wait for apple approval.

How long does that take a few days?

Depends on if Instagram considers this to be a big enough issue to release a “hot-fix”. Otherwise they might just ride it through until their next release cycle.

Apple have become really good at approving apps recently though. Generally every submission gets picked up within 3-4 days and either approved or rejected within the same day or the next day.

When is the next release cycle on average?

This is not something anyone else other than instagram can confirm. Different companies have different development processes and release schedules. Let’s just hope Instagram considers this to be a big enough issue to do a hot-fix release.

Although, going by their release history, it seems they release at the end of every sprint, that’s every 2 weeks.

a hot fix is 24-48 hours?

you're talking about smaller developers and their apps.

big apps like instagram get priority and there's no such thing as waiting. clearly no one at instagram or apple bothered to run this app prior to pushing it out to the world.

This is absolutely not true. Everyone has to join the queue and also every company has to go through the approval process like everyone else. Bigger companies do have direct contacts within apple and they can expedite the process to some extent in case of bigger mess ups but it’s definitely not a norm in day to day release.

lol, ok keep thinking that.

do you really think instagram's app has been sitting in a queue for 3 days and pushed out today? no.
