Apple’s iOS 11 brings a new feature people wanted for a long time – supports playing saved GIFs on Photos app. We’ve installed iOS 11 on our iPhone and iPad, and got a test on this feature since the beta 1.
For android users, this feature may be not something new because GIF playing is an ordinary feature on Android for a long time. However this is so good for iOS users. Because before iOS 11, all the animated pictures saved on iOS Photos app are like a static picture, and there is no way to play the Gifs on Photos app.
