As per the experience of some of Instagram users, Instagram is deleting requests of those accounts who are migrating public to private and vice-versa very often. Kindly accept all your pending requests before switching to public or business profile. Although there is no such update in the developers documentation, so this might be temporary. Stay tuned. We will inform you asap if there is any such update.
Instagram Limit to Accept Follow Requests
“We’ve added limitations to accounts that switch often between private and public to protect our community from inauthentic engagement. You reached the limit of follow requests you can accept for now because your account is private. By making your account public, anyone can follow you but you will lose your pending follow requests.”
