    The first useful tool to download videos from Instagram is functionality Screen recording of iOS, available starting with iOS 11, which allows you to record a video, capturing everything that is played on the screen and, in this case, in the app or on the web version of Instagram.



    That said, to make use of it, first launch the Instagram on your iPhone or visit WhatsApp Web on iPad (for which the official Instagram app is not available but, if you want, you can download the one for iPhone) and locate the video of your interest. Now, open the Control Center, swiping from the top right corner to the bottom of the screen (up iPhone X or later models e iPad with iOS 12 and later) or by swiping from the bottom of the screen upwards (on models prior to iPhone X and iPad with iOS 11 or earlier), then presses the registration button (the circle).

Then confirm the operation by clicking on Allow.

    Once this is done, at the end of the download, carry out the brief initial configuration, if requested, by answering 0 (zero) to the questions you are asked and pressing on Continue, when required.
