The first beta of 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 beta 1 on our iPhone and iPad, and got a test on this feature.
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 beta, all the animated pictures on iOS device will be put to Photos app and saved like a static picture, and there is no way to play Gifs on iPhone except you share them.
