Use a GIF Saved on Your iPhone
You can also send GIFs that are stored in the Photos app on your iPhone. Here’s how:
- Open the Messages app.
- Create or find the conversation in Messages where you want to add a GIF.
- Select the Photos app icon in the Messages toolbar.
- Select All Photos.
- Scroll through your photo library and select the GIF you want to add to the message.
Once you add the GIF, you can also add text, emojis, and more to finish the message before sending it out.
Hint: You can quickly find GIFs by opening the “Animated” folder in the Photos app. Apple automatically creates this folder in iOS 11 and later as soon as you add animated images to Photos.
