How to fast-charge MacBook Pro for 50% battery in 30 minutes

iPhone owners are no strangers to the fast-charge feature.

Every Apple smartphone from iPhone X onwards supports fast-charging of the internal battery, taking you from dead to fifty percent in under about thirty minutes. On iPhone, this handy feature requires a compatible USB Power Delivery charger providing at least eighteen watts of power along with a USB-C to Lightning cable.

The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models from 2023 are the first Macs to support fast charging. However, you’ll need the appropriate power source and cable to fast-charge these notebooks, as detailed in a support document on the Apple website.

16-inch MacBook Pro

On the 16-inch MacBook Pro, you can fast-charge with the following adapter and cable:

140W USB-C power adapter + USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable

14-inch MacBook Pro

To fast-charge the 14-inch MacBook Pro, use any of these power sources and cables:

140W USB-C power adapter + USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable

96W USB-C power adapter + USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable

96W USB-C power adapter + USB-C charge cable

Pro Display XDR + Thunderbolt 3 cable

External display with 94W power delivery + Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C cable

Of course, you don’t have to use Apple’s own power adapters. Any third-party adapter should do the trick as long as it matches the required wattage and is compatible with the USB Power Delivery (USB PD) protocol. Read: How to fast charge your iPhone

2024 MacBook Pro battery specifications

All 14-inch MacBook Pro configurations (model numbers A2442 / EMC 3650) are outfitted with a 70-watt-hour battery, but only the pricier ones come with a 96W power adapter in the box that’s required to fast-charge those notebooks. As for the baseline model (the Apple M1 Pro chip with eight CPU cores), it ships with a 67W power brick. If that’s your computer, you’re going to need to purchase at least a 96W power adapter for fast charging. Read: How to find out the battery cycle count of your Mac notebook

Why you can only fast-charge 16″ MacBook Pro via MagSafe

The 16-inch MacBook Pros (model numbers A2485 / EMC 3651) are powered by a 100-watt-hour battery and include Apple’s 140W USB-C wall brick in the box. In other words: No matter which 16-inch MacBook Pro you pick up, it will be fast charge-capable — you’ll find your 140W charger along with a USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable thrown in the box.

You can also purchase a 140W USB-C power adapter separately from Apple for $99, as well as the company’s USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable for $49. One important caveat… Even though the 16-inch MacBook Pro supports charging via its USB-C ports, the underlying USB PD protocol doesn’t support fast charging above a hundred watts.

Enter the USB Power Delivery 3.1 Extended Power Range (EPR) standard.

It supports up to 48V at 5A, resulting in power delivery via USB-C cables up to 240W. Apple’s new 140W charger shipping with the 16-inch MacBook Pro is compliant with —Apple’s version is 28V at 5A, good enough for power delivery at up to 140W.

On the downside, the standard is so new that any EPR-compatible USB-C to USB-C cables have not been developed yet (at least that was the case at the time of writing). And that’s why the fastest charging on the 16-inch model is restricted to MagSafe.

And what about 100W+ USB-C cables?

No such issues with the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

As mentioned, the 14-incher uses a 96W charger so it safely works with the current USB-C cables that support power delivery up to 100W. The USB Implementers Forum website states that cables supporting the new 240-watt option will need to feature new icons so people can confirm visually that their USB PD 3.1 EPR cable supports up to 240W.

So when USB-C to USB-C cables supporting the new EPR standard start shipping, you’ll buy them to fast-charge your 16-inch MacBook Pro via one of the USB-C ports, right? Not so fast. The USB-C ports on the 16-inch MacBook Pro aren’t compatible with EPR.

Jason Snell, Six Colors:

On the 16-inch models—all of which come with a 140W adapter—you can only do ultra-fast charging via MagSafe. While there’s a new specification that allows for much higher power delivery levels over USB ports, the Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 ports on the MacBook Pro don’t support it. You can still charge via those ports, of course—just not at the ultra-fastest speed.

Bottom line: Use MagSafe charging on the 16-inch MacBook Pro for the fastest charging available. Because the USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable that ships with the computer works with USB PD 3.1 EPR, MagSafe charging remains the only way you can go from zero to fifty percent charge in 30 minutes on the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

2024 MacBook Pro sports a DIY-friendly battery design

iFixit’s teardown of the 2023 MacBook Pro models has revealed an interesting design tweak: battery pull tabs, a first for a Mac notebook. Also interesting: Apple no longer hides the battery under the notebook’s logic board. It used to be that the MacBook Pro batteries were glued to the top case of the notebook. Thanks to this change, a battery swap won’t require full removal of the MacBook Pro’s brains, either.

As the site notes, these new Mac notebooks offer the “first reasonably DIY-friendly battery replacement procedure since 2012.”

Protecting 30 Percent Of The Oceans Would Benefit The Entire Planet

When we give marine life a chance to recoup, the ocean gives back. In protected ocean parks, the mass of fish is on average over 600 percent greater than nearby fished areas. Often, the fish return the favor when their shoals spill over from the protected area into commercial fishing grounds.

In a new study published in the journal Nature, a team of marine scientists analyzed how to maximize the effects of building such reciprocity with the ocean. Their findings show which areas of the oceans to prioritize for a triple benefit: increased carbon storage, biodiversity, and fish numbers.

Right now, only about 2.7 percent of the world’s oceans are completely protected from commercial fishing, mining, oil drilling, and other destructive activities.

The team mapped where protections would yield the greatest benefit to each of the three areas. They included multiple measures of biodiversity, considering not just where the highest concentrations of species were, but which areas include unique organisms. For carbon storage, they considered marine sediments that, if left undisturbed by nets trawling the seafloor, could store carbon for hundreds of years. And they looked at where adding a marine park could lead to spillover of sealife, increasing food supplies for us humans. The researchers developed an algorithm that can weigh the factors depending on which benefits people are most interested in.

That protection doesn’t have to be to the detriment of other, more selfish goals. With strategic placement of marine reserves, global seafood catch can actually increase about 8 million tons, the study found. And if biodiversity is the emphasis, then up to 71 percent of the ocean could be protected without decreasing fishery yields. If implemented, the network of marine protected areas could provide sustainable seafood while ensuring that the ecosystems remain healthy and resilient.

Protecting the ocean can also help slow climate change. Currently, more than one percent of the ocean bottom is turned up every year to trawl for seafood. When the sediments are disturbed, the carbon stored in them can be released as carbon dioxide. The researchers estimated 1.47 petagrams of carbon (that’s 1.47 billion metric tons) are released annually from bottom trawling. That’s about the same as the carbon emissions from the aviation industry.

Joshua Cinner, an environmental social scientist focused on coral reef fisheries, says that the findings add to growing research (including his own) that shows marine protected areas can achieve multiple goals if located strategically. “The big lesson for marine conservation here is outcomes are substantially improved through strategic coordination among countries,” he wrote to Popular Science in an email. “By working together, countries can maximise the benefits of conservation at the lowest costs.”

[Related: Only 13 percent of the world’s oceans are still wild]

Just like addressing the climate crisis, protecting the oceans is a global effort. The vast majority of the priority areas that researchers identified are in the jurisdiction of individual countries, within 200 miles of their shores. That zone is where 96 percent of the global fish catch comes from. So to protect for a triple benefit, international cooperation will be key, the authors write: “A globally coordinated effort could be nearly twice as efficient as uncoordinated, national-level conservation planning.”

Sala says we need something like a Paris climate agreement but for biodiversity. The opportunity to enact that coordinated effort is coming soon. The study results come just ahead of the United Nations Convention of Biological Diversity, which will take place in Kunming, China, in May. There, international representatives from 190 countries will sign a biodiversity agreement. Sala hopes the treaty will include “30 by 30” as a target. “This decade is our last, best chance to restore our balance with the ocean.”

Performing Neural Style Transfer In 5 Minutes

This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon.


Neural style transfer is a way of generating an image by blending two different images. In other words, it  uses two images to develop a new image that retains the core structure of one image while styling it using the other image. It is a generative model that is very popular for creating high-quality realistic art. They are also useful in gaming and virtual reality which is a trending topic because of Meta.

This article will not explore the workings and architecture of the neural style transfer model in-depth. However, we will have a basic overview. The model is built using two networks, namely the feature extractor and the style transfer network. Convolutional Neural Networks perform extremely well on image datasets as they are capable of capturing spatial information and extracting the low-level and high-level features present in images by performing convolution over the images using a filter or a kernel. This is one of the main reasons for the exceptional performance of CNN on image classification task when compared to other neural networks architectures.

The feature extraction model is usually a pre-trained deep CNN like Xception, ResNet50, VGG16, VGG19, etc. Using a pre-trained deep CNN as a feature extractor  works on the fact that some layers learn to extract the contents in an image while some layers learn the texture feature present in the images. The style transfer network is usually an autoencoder and has the encoder-decoder architecture as it accepts an image input and returns an image as output. Refer to this article, to learn more about autoencoders and how they can be built in TensorFlow.

Fortunately, there are many trained models for various tasks like classification, regression, time series analysis, etc. available in the TensorFlow Hub, which is a repository for high-quality trained models maintained by TensorFlow. These production-ready models can be accessed and fine-tuned with just a few lines of code. In this article, we will be making use of a trained style transfer model that is available in the TensorFlow hub to perform neural style transfer.

As mentioned earlier, two images will be used in performing neural style transfer. One image is known as the content image while the other is known as the style image. The content image is the image on which we want to apply the texture or style. The style image is the image from which the texture or texture is extracted and transferred over to the content image to produce a stylized image as output.

We will be using a picture of my pet as the content image in this article, but it could be anything like your selfie, a picture of your parents, or anything in general.

These are the style images that we will be using to extract the texture and apply it to the content image to generate the stylized image. I downloaded these images from Unsplash as they provide free-to-use high-quality stock images.

Installing TensorFlow Hub

TensorFlow Hub is required for accessing the trained models. TensorFlow Hub can be installed like any other python package on your local machine.

!pip install --upgrade tensorflow_hub Importing Modules

These are the modules that will be used for implementing the neural style transfer model in this article. OpenCV will be used for image loading and basic image processing in this article.

import tensorflow_hub as hub import tensorflow as tf import cv2 import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from tensorflow.python.ops.numpy_ops import np_config; np_config.enable_numpy_behavior() Using the Neural Style transfer model from TensorFlow Hub

As mentioned earlier, we will be using a trained neural style transfer model from TensorFlow Hub. Using trained models from TensorFlow Hub is extremely simple and easy. You can either download the trained model from TensorFlow Hub and use it by loading it from your disk, or you can directly provide the URL for the trained model. We will be using the URL for loading the trained model. Alternatively, you can download the neural style transfer model from here.

Loading and Preprocessing Content and Style Image

We will be using OpenCV to read and preprocess the images. OpenCV uses BGR color format instead of the traditional RGB color format and so it is necessary to change the color format to RGB. We will also normalize the image array to reduce computational complexity.

def load_img(path): img = cv2.imread(path) img = cv2.cvtColor(img, cv2.COLOR_BGR2RGB) img = img/255. return img content_image = load_img('content.jpeg') style_1 = load_img('style_1.png') style_2 = load_img('style_1.png') Performing Neural Style Transfer

The trained neural style transfer model accepts images as tensors of the float-32 data type only. It is necessary to perform this transformation on both the content and the style image. The trained model works best when the style image is a square image with 256 pixels on both sides, as it was the dimension of each image while the model was being trained. So, we will resize the style image to the specified dimension and transform it into a float-32 type tensor. The trained model accepts the content and the style image as input parameters and returns the output image after performing neural style transfer on the content image using the style image.

def apply_style(content_image, style): content_image = content_image.reshape(1, content_image.shape[0], content_image.shape[1], content_image.shape[2]).astype('float32') content_image = tf.convert_to_tensor(content_image) style = cv2.resize(style, (256,256)) style = style.reshape(1, style.shape[0], style.shape[1], style.shape[2]).astype('float32') outputs = model(tf.constant(content_image), tf.constant(style)) stylized_image = outputs[0] return stylized_image

Let’s visualize the output image after performing neural style transfer using matplotlib. Alternatively, you can save the generated picture to your local disk as a png or a jpg file.

img = apply_style(content_image, style_1) plt.xticks([]) plt.yticks([]) plt.grid(False) plt.imshow(img[0])

This is the output image using the first style image.

img = apply_style(content_image, style_2) plt.xticks([]) plt.yticks([]) plt.grid(False) plt.imshow(img[0])

This is the output image using the second style image.


In this article, we explored the following concepts.

How To Check Your Ipad’s Battery Usage And Tips To Improve Battery Health

Like every other iPad user, we are sure you utilize it for a wide variety of purposes. You might be a gamer playing some iPad games. Or perhaps you’re a working professional leveraging the iPad’s multitasking features and widgets. No matter which type of user you are, we all bank on the iPad’s massive battery capacity and its long health to get us through the days. However, if you’ve been using your iPad for some time now, its battery might not be in the best of shape out there. So if you’ve looking to keep a close eye on your iPad’s battery usage for any reason, keep reading the guide we have compiled below.

Check Your iPad’s Battery Usage

The method given below will ensure you learn more about your iPad’s battery usage habits in no time. Moreover, we have also compiled a list of the best tips and tricks you can undertake to ensure the iPad’s health is even better in the future. To jump to those tips, use the table below.

Reasons to Check Your iPad’s Battery Usage

If your iPad is brand new and you’ve just started using it then there is no reason to check its battery usage. However, users who have had it for some time or the ones who are suspicious of any battery-draining activity should definitely check out their iPad’s battery. In addition to that, here are some of the benefits that come out of it:

1. Helps You Keep Track of Your iPad’s Health

Your iPad’s overall battery usage habit is pertinent to ensuring it lasts you a long time. By checking it regularly, you’re ensuring it keeps running at its optimal state continuously.

2. Helps Keep Your iPad Usage in Check 3. Keeps a Handle on Power-Hungry Apps

The primary purpose of checking your iPad’s battery is focused on identifying and getting rid of apps that are consuming too much power. Your iPad might have a ton of apps that are hogging your battery. Checking your iPad’s battery usage will help in identifying them.

4. It Might Inform of You of Any Fishy Activity

There may be times when you’re not using your iPad but its battery is still going down to %0. While iPadOS’s ecosystem ensures that your iPad remains worry-free, recent reports of malware like the Pegasus Spyware have shown that it can be infiltrated. While an iPad’s battery usage report won’t tell you a lot, it might be able to give an indication of something that is hidden inside your system.

How to Check the iPad’s Battery Usage

1. Open the Settings app on your iPad.

You will be met by your iPad’s battery usage report that will detail your iPad’s usage. The iPad allows users to either check their last 24 hours or 10 days to get accurate statistics. As you can see, the battery info on the iPad details the amount of battery usage every app has taken up along with concise weekly graphs for the measure.

You can use this data to quickly identify battery-hogging apps and learn which ones you need to remove. You can even tap the blue Show Activity option to show you the exact usage of the apps on and off-screen. In our example, the HP Smart app is taking up an unnecessary amount of the iPad’s battery and must be removed. You can use the iPad’s battery usage report to quickly glance at the daily apps from time to time and even identity any unusual activity.

Tips to Prolong Your iPad’s Battery Life

Now that you know how to check on your iPad’s battery usage, make sure to monitor it periodically and keep an eye out for power-hungry apps. However, apart from the apps themselves, your own usage habits might be putting your iPad’s battery at risk. To ensure you get the most out of your iPad’s battery, here are some practical tips you can use for your iPad.

1. Offload or Remove Apps Highlighted in Your Battery Usage Screen

Drawing from our Battery Report from the iPad, whatever battery-hungry apps you have identified should be removed. However, in case they are apps you cannot remove, then we suggest lowering their usage to be merciful on your iPad.

2. Make Sure Your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Aren’t Always On

One of the biggest power drainers of any device is the wireless connectivity services like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Where there is no harm in actively using them, leaving them ON all the time spells trouble for your iPad’s battery. Make sure to turn off your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when they are not in use to save precious battery life.

3. Turn off Airdrop and Handoff

Airdrop and Handoff are Apple’s patented services that are present in iOS and iPadOS. While Airdrop helps users transfer files across wirelessly, Handoff lets you start your work on one device then lets you pick it up from another. Brillant as they both are, they cost your iPad its battery. If you’re not an ardent user of Airdrop and Handoff then having them enabled in the background is a waste. Here’s how to turn them both off:

Turn off Airdrop

1. Open the Settings app on your iPad.

2. Find and tap General from the sidebar. Tap Airdrop and it will lead you to another menu. 

Turn off Handoff

1. Open the Settings app on your iPad.

2. Find and tap General from the sidebar.

3. Tap AirPlay and Handoff and it will lead you to another menu.

4. Simply Toggle it off to disable it.

4. Reduce your Email Sync Frequency

Here you can turn off Push to stop server data push and lessen Fetch frequency to get emails on your iPad less often.

5. Limit Background App Refresh

Background App Refresh gives apps inside the iPad ability to refresh their content when you aren’t using them. This way when you come back to these apps you are greeted with fresh content. However, like Email sync, these apps consume the iPad’s battery and deteriorate its health.

6. Turn off Location Services

Much like your phone, apps that use GPS services are constantly pinging your network and using the battery to get your location. If you’re a regular maps user then it is fine. However, many apps that don’t need your GPS still use location services to get your approximate location.

7. Turn on Airplane Mode Before Bed

This little trick is for the users who want to turn off the above services but feel too lazy to go step by step. Turning on Airplane mode on your device automatically cuts off all connectivity services including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and even Cellular.

You can turn off the Airplane mode on the regular by going to Settings and simply toggling it on. Do this regularly before bedtime to improve your iPad’s battery usage routine.

8. Reduce Screen Brightness

9. Don’t Charge Too Often

10. Don’t Let It Overheat What Is Low Power Mode and How to Use It?

1. Open the Settings app on your iPad.

2. Using the sidebar, find and tap Battery.

3. Here on top of the iPad’s battery usage report, you will see a toggle for Low Power Mode. Simply turn it on and you’re golden. You will know it has been enabled when the battery icon on the top right turns yellow.

How To Remove All Of One Color In Photoshop (Fast!)

Video Tutorial

How To Remove All Of One Color In Photoshop

There are two different tools you can use for this. The first is called Select Color Range, while the other is called the Magic Wand Tool. Both of these tools work by sampling color and turning it into a selection.

If you need to cut out a person, for example, this technique will only work if they’re against a solid colored background.

A good example for these techniques.

If there are too many variations in color, you run the risk of accidentally selecting part of your subject. To avoid this, be selective when you use this technique.

A bad example for these techniques.

These methods will work best when one color is abundant. Removing a logo from a white background is a perfect situation for this. Since there’s a solid color behind the logo, it’s extremely easy to select with these methods.

Now I know what you’re thinking. Not every photo has a perfectly colored background, and that’s okay. With the tools below, you’ll learn how to select and delete similar hues of color all at once!

The Magic Wand Tool

In a nutshell, the Magic Wand Tool is exceptionally good at selecting large chunks of similar colors to create a selection.

In the instance where you want to remove all of one color, there may be no better tool for the job!

– Refining Your Tool Settings

To access the Magic Wand Tool, press W. 

If there are a lot of variations in hue, it’s worthwhile to increase the tolerance. You can do this in your top settings bar by typing in any number in the tolerance box.

If you aren’t sure, stick with a tolerance between 10 – 30. This range is a good starting ground and will include slight hue variations.

– Adjusting Your Selection

It’s not uncommon for the Magic Wand Tool to miss a few spots. Rather than starting all over, you can add to your selection.

You can repeat this process as many times as necessary to select all of the colors you want to remove.

– How To Remove All Of One Color With The Magic Wand Tool

Once you have a selection, it’s easy to remove all of one color in Photoshop. Before you do so, you need to decide whether to do it permanently or non-destructively.

To remove the color permanently would mean that you cannot make adjustments to this later. Once the color is gone, you can’t refine or adjust the deleted area afterward.

To remove a color non-destructively, you would add your selection to a layer mask. This allows you to adjust the selection area later on if you need to.

The choice is entirely yours, so I’ll share both options.

– Removing Color Permanently

With your selection active, press the Delete key to erase everything inside of your selection. Now you’ve successfully removed all of one color, but you can’t go back and refine this later.

Removing background with delete key.

– Removing Color Via Layer Mask

With an active selection, press Shift + Command + I (Mac) or Shift + Control + I (PC) to inverse your selection.

Next, select the image layer and add a layer mask.

Your selection will automatically apply itself to the layer mask and turn your selected color invisible.

Now you’ve successfully learned how to remove all of one color in Photoshop using the Magic Wand Tool. Now let’s discuss the Select Color Range tool!

The Select Color Range Tool

Unlike the Magic Wand Tool, Select Color Range uses the eyedropper tool to sample colors in your photo. From these samples, it creates a selection based on a grayscale that is later turned into a selection.

That may sound incredibly complicated, but I promise it’s not. Let me prove it.

The select color dialogue box will appear, and in this, you have a few options. The ones you should focus on first are the view settings.

– Best View Settings For Select Color

To get the best results, you’ll want to set your image preview to ‘selection’ and your selection preview to ‘grayscale.’

At first, this looks very convoluted, but it’s simple to understand once you think of it as a layer mask.

Anything that you see that’s white is 100% visible, aka selected.

Anything black is 100% transparent, aka not selected.

All the shades of grey in between represent different levels of transparency. This means that 50% grey will leave that area 50% visible.

To remove all of one color in Photoshop, you want to make your select color as close to 100% white and black as possible.

– How To Create A Selection With The Select Color Range Tool

Rinse and repeat until you have gotten most of your color added to the selection area. To help refine your selection further, you can use the fuzziness slider.

The fuzziness slider works by adjusting the tolerance of the selection area. The higher the fuzziness, the more lenient Photoshop will be with which colors get selected.

Now, if you lower the fuzziness, Photoshop will be much pickier with which colors get selected.

There’s no ‘perfect’ way to do this since the best fuzziness will change from image to image. Try moving the slider up and down to see the results it creates.

– How To Remove Color With The Select Color Range Tool

With your current selection, you’re once again faced with the choice to delete the selection contents or create a layer mask.

To permanently delete the contents of your selection, press the delete key. This will remove all of one color in your photo, but there’s no way to refine this later.

Removing the blue by pressing Delete

To create a layer mask, first you’ll need to invert your selection. To do this, press Shift + Command + I (Mac) or Shift + Control + I (PC) to swap your selection area.

Next, select your image layer, and add a layer mask.

Adding a layer mask will make your selected color invisible, but you can still refine this selection.

Just as before, the choice is yours! Both options will achieve the same result.

How To Unfollow People On Instagram Fast

Have you recently followed a bunch of people on Instagram that you want to unfollow fast?

If you tried unfollowing a lot of people at one go, you will probably get action blocked by Instagram.

Otherwise, Instagram will end up disabling your following list.

So, if following people in your following list isn’t going to work, how can you unfollow people fast?

This article will guide you on the best way to unfollow people on Instagram fast without getting action blocked.

Let’s get right into it.

How to unfollow people on Instagram fast

To unfollow people on Instagram fast, you can use the “Least Interacted With” feature on your following list.

Instagram recently released a tab called, “Least Interacted With”, and you can use it to unfollow people on Instagram fast without getting action blocked.

The best way to unfollow people on Instagram fast is to utilize the “Least Interacted With” filter.

Fundamentally, the “Least Interacted With” tab shows you who you should be unfollowing (based on your low interaction with them).

Hence, if you use this feature on Instagram, they are going to be less strict on the actions that you’re carrying out (unfollowing).

This is because Instagram wants you to be aware of the people that you’re least interacting with and unfollow them.

So, if you want to mass-unfollow or unfollow people fast, you’re going to want to use this “Least Interacted With” list to do so.

Simply go down the list and find people who you don’t want to be following anymore and unfollow them one-by-one.

How to use the “Least Interacted With” feature

The “Least Interacted With” list is the best way to unfollow everyone on Instagram fast.

There are 50 users in the “Least Interacted With” list.

What you want to do is to unfollow people in this list instead of your following list.

This is because this feature is fairly new to Instagram (released in early 2023) and they are more lenient in the number of actions you can do from it.

I tried unfollowing 50 people from this list using an alternate account and I did not get action blocked ⁠— so your account will be safe!

Here’s how you can unfollow people using this method effectively.

Simply pull out the “Least Interacted With” list, go down the list and unfollow people in it.

Then, unfollow everyone (or selected people) until you’ve reached the end of the list.

After that, you’ll want to go back to your following list and pull down to refresh.

This will refresh the “Least Interacted With” list and you can unfollow people from there again.

Repeat this process 4 times (in a one-hour interval).

Once you’ve repeated the process 4 times, it’s important to wait 24 hours to do it again! Otherwise, your account may be action blocked from hitting the unfollow limit.

At this rate, you can unfollow 200 people a day using this method without getting action blocked.

Why don’t I have the “Least Interacted With” feature?

A number of people do not have the “Least Interacted With” feature on their account.

If you don’t have the feature, Instagram might not have released it to you yet.

The “Least Interacted With” feature is only rolling out this feature to some people.

Since this feature is fairly new (as of early 2023), Instagram is still testing out this feature on some people, but not everyone.

How to unfollow people without the “Least Interacted With” feature

If you don’t have the ‘Least Interacted With’ feature, you can use the ‘Sort by’ feature instead.

You can filter it by the latest or earliest followed.

If you’re using the follow/unfollow strategy (which I do not recommend) you can use the ‘Latest followed’ filter to unfollow a selective number of people.

In addition, you can use the earliest filter to find the earliest people to unfollow (if you no longer want their content to be shown on your feed).

However, you cannot unfollow users repetitively using this filter unlike the “Least Interacted With” feature or you will be action blocked.

This is because the Sort by feature is not as new as compared to the “Least Interacted With” feature.

This means that you cannot abuse the Sort by feature to unfollow people because it’s directly from your following list.

So, if you’re unfollowing people using the Sort by feature, only unfollow a maximum of five users in an interval of 5 to 10 minutes.

Also, make sure to use Instagram normally after unfollowing a bunch of people (e.g. liking posts on your feed).

This will not only increase your “trust score” but it will prevent your account from getting action blocked because you’re acting like a human.

Instagram unfollow limit

Your unfollow limit on Instagram depends on your “trust score”.

The maximum number of people you should unfollow a day is 200 users.

As a general rule, you should not unfollow more than 200 users a day or you will be action blocked.

However, if your trust score is high, you can unfollow up to 500 people a day without any problems.

But that doesn’t mean that you should unfollow 500 people a day. If you do so, your trust score will be negatively affected.

For example, if you didn’t engage in any follow/unfollow activity in a long time and one day you decide to unfollow a hundred users, Instagram will think that you’re using automation.

So don’t exceed the unfollow limit or your account will be action blocked.

The action block can last for several hours, a day, or more which will obstruct your unfollowing efforts.

Another thing to note is that whenever you’re unfollowing users, you want to make sure that you’re using the mobile app and not the desktop app.

This is because the desktop version of Instagram is more likely to contain scripts than the mobile app.

So if you’re carrying out actions (e.g. following, unfollowing) on the desktop version of Instagram, you’re going to have a lower ‘trust score’.

When you’re using your phone, you can carry out more actions because it’s hard to create scripts on the actual Instagram app so Instagram is more lenient on their restrictions there.

Why does Instagram block you from unfollowing multiple people?

Are you wondering why Instagram blocks you from unfollowing multiple people?

Do note that if you’ve happened to be blocked from unfollowing, Instagram will block you from following as well.

This is because follows and unfollows are in the same category.

Here are the reasons for the action block and the disablement of your following list if you unfollow too many people.

To prevent automation

Instagram is trying to prevent automation from happening on their platform.

You should not use any software or automation to follow/unfollow people.

If you use automation, your account will be action blocked. There are tons of people who got their accounts blocked from using automation.

In addition, you may get your account disabled (permanently banned) from Instagram.

So, if you’re trying to grow your Instagram account or follow a bunch of people, do not use automation.

However, if you’re using a trusted tool to post on Instagram, then that’s completely fine.

There are many tools that are trusted by Instagram such as Later, Buffer, and Hootsuite.

Tools that are mainly for scheduling posts on Instagram are safe to use.

There won’t be any issues regarding these tools if they are an Instagram/Facebook partner.

To check whether a certain tool is a partner of Instagram/Facebook, simply visit the Facebook Partner Directory, and search for the name of the company.

If the company appears on the search results in the directory, then their software/tool is safe to use.

However, if the company does not appear on the search results, then you’ll want to defer from using their software/tool.

If you’re using an automated tool like Jarvee who is not a partner of Facebook/Instagram, your account is at risk.

Even if you use it to schedule posts, Instagram can tell that it comes from a distrusted source and you will be action blocked.

Hence, you should always use tools that are trusted by checking whether they are a Facebook/Instagram partner.

Mitigate spam

Another reason why Instagram blocks you from unfollowing multiple people is to mitigate spam on their platform.

They want to limit the number of actions that you are doing.

For instance, if you’re unfollowing a lot of people at once and you’re not doing in a human-like manner, Instagram may think that you’re a bot and block you.


The best way to unfollow users fast/mass unfollow/bulk unfollow is to use the “Least Interacted With” feature.

This feature allows you to unfollow users without getting action blocked because it’s still being tested out.

If you don’t have this feature, it’s because Instagram only releases it to some people.

So, you’ll have to either wait until the feature is released to you or unfollow people at a much slower rate to prevent being action blocked.
