How to undo the controversial 2018 Snapchat update on iPhone

The app still looks the same from outside but it splits into two sections one for friend's feed and another one for social content (most viewed stories), while the struggling part is when a user uploads his/her story, now the story icon is being displayed with profile bar. Here, you could view your Snap Stories and your friends' as well. Here's what to try if you want to get rid of the new Snapchat and revert to the old version. Many posted to their Stories about how much they hated the new redesign under the misguided notion that Snapchat might read their messages and reconsider the rollout.

Snap says it's received some encouraging user growth and engagement signs with the new design, but it's clear that young people are far from excited about it.

But it also lets you see where your Snapchat friends are hanging out, highlighting their locations on the map with a small avatar. This section was previously exclusive to chats on Snapchats.

Moreover, now friends are shown in algorithm statistics in which most frequently connected friends are shown on the top of the list of "Friends Feed", which can be counted on good points. Snapchat now shows localised Snap Stories from creators and the community.

Instagram testing screenshot warnings in Stories
According to the report, Instagram is likely to roll out the feature if there is not a major impact on engagement. Anybody could take the screenshot of someone's photo or story without notifying the creator of the post or story.

However, in the case of the Snapchat redesign, Mashable discovered there's a tiny bit of a workaround if you have an iPhone... at least for now.

For many tweens and teens, the Snapchat overhaul is the first time they've ever seen a piece of software they regularly use undergo a significant change.

Log-in and you are back with the old version but not for a long time.

Lastly, Snapchat now opens the app to its camera. However, doing so will delete all your Memories saved on Snapchat.
