The new option would make it easier to showcase your best posts to visitors and may be part of a broader effort to extend user control.
According to reports from users, Instagram is starting to test a new option that would allow users to change the order in which their content is arranged in their photo grid on their profile.

The option would allow users to reshuffle their videos and images with enough flexibility to choose exactly how to curate their feeds. This can be very beneficial when wanting to push content up on the grid. Unfortunately, it has been impossible to do as Instagram places feed content in chronological order.
According to the screenshots tweeted by users like app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi, the platform has added an “Edit Grid” option within profile settings, enabling those participating in the test to reshuffle the order of the content on their feed arbitrarily.
Adam Mosseri recently teased a new “pinned post” option through which users and creators will be able to select a particular post they would like to highlight and pin it at the top of their grids.
Broadly, Instagram has been working on improving user control over their experience on the platform lately. For example, the social media platform announced the reinstatement of a chronological feed display option for users, which has been replaced for years by the algorithm-based feed everyone was forced to adapt to.
