Instagram for iOS received a major update today, adding three new filters to the app: Lark, Reyes, and Juno. Lark brightens up images and adds purple tones, while Reyes adds a vintage-looking fade with yellow tones. Juno is the boldest of the three new filters, brightening images and bumping up the contrast for a more stylized look.

Today's three new filters come four months after Instagram added Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden, and Perpetua, the first new filter additions to the app in two years. With those five filters, Instagram began focusing more on subtle improvements, a trend continued with the three new filters added today.

Whats the point of a 8 MP, 3264 x 2448 pixels camera enabled phone , just to use filters and make them look like pics taken on a flip-phone

instagram was born at a time when the filters made the pictures look much better than what the phone's camera could do natively.

now, as said above, it's about having fun.

Now I can leave a coffee emoji hashtag to go with my coffee pictures!

I'm joking, but it will happen.
