Instagram getting a makeover? It looks like a new profile bio interface is being tested

This Instagram update has been spotted on the stable version of 85.0 on iOS.

Instagram seems to be due for a makeover. We've spotted a completely new layout for the profile page on Instagram. As far as we can tell, this is the same UI that Instagram teased in November last year and is rolling out to select accounts.

As you can see there is no change made in the lower part of the profile page layout. But the upper half of the screen has completely been reconstructed.

The elements remain the same name, bio, links (if you want to add any), and the profile picture fitted inside the circular frame, but their placement has changed.

The profile picture has now shifted to the right side of the screen and seems to be a bit bigger than the previous one.

Your complete bio is now placed on the left of the screen. The structure remains the same though (Thank God!)

Moving on, the edit profile column has now been brought down, placed above the Highlights section.

The number of followers and 'following' bit has also been shifted to the bottom of the bio section, just above the edit profile section (when viewing your own profile).

Now you may not know how many posts you have as the number of posts section has been taken down.

This update has been spotted on the stable 85.0 version on iOS and it seems that the update is rolling out in phases as users with the same Instagram version haven't received the update yet.
