There is no in-built feature in Instagram to schedule your post. You need to use a third-party app to do it. A whole bunch of tools are available to schedule post for both android and iOS. Apart from those apps, Buffer is the best Instagram scheduler. Even with the Buffer app, every Instagram member can’t schedule their posts. Only Business account users can schedule post.
