The gif format is such a peculiar graphic format. This is a cross between a normal picture and video. We can say that this is an animation, or rather, an animated picture. Due to the fact that files of this format are relatively lightweight, and its high popularity among users is explained. Also, "gifs" are more informative than ordinary static photos. Very often they are used in a variety of memes, or jokes on the network. Now in the same VK there are a lot of communities with millions of subscribers, where you can find a variety of gif files. Recall that you can also have a lot of members in your group if you place an order for the corresponding service on our website.

Of course, sitting in Vkontakte, you constantly come across cool GIFs, and most of all you want to download them to your iPhone. Now consider the complete algorithm of the actions that you must take to pick up (upload, download, save) an interesting gif on your phone (in our case, iPhone).

How to save GIFs on iPhone?

Today’s topic worries a lot of iPhone users, because today we’ll talk about how you can save a gif to your device.

It would seem that the matter is quite simple and nothing complicated should be, but iOS is such a system that any simple action can turn into something more.

How to download a gif on iPhone?

GIF has become a very popular image format in recent years. Including on such devices as the iPhone, because most often we see these images on social networks and instant messengers.

Whatever animations are, they always remain images. This means that the storage methods are exactly the same as with ordinary pictures.

But given the fact that iOS has a special operating system, there are still a couple of interesting points that are very enraging.

Here is the instruction for downloading the GIF image to your device and for now, let's start from the browser:

  • go to the browser,
  • We search for the desired image in the search and select it, wait until it loads,
  • then we clamp on it and select in the menu Save image.

It’s best to use Safari for this. It is also worth noting that the picture will be saved in your regular gallery with other photos.

But when you open it, it will open like a normal picture without movements. But do not worry about this, because if you send it to someone, it will open normally.

If you want to see the gif, then just download the application from the App Store for this. They are usually called something like GIF Player or GIF Viewer.

How to save a GIF on an iPhone from VK?

As you probably know, the social network VKontakte is most often used for gif images. And sometimes you want to download some pictures to your iPhone.

Most applications are very limited in functionality. Therefore, just go to the official VC application and download the picture will not work.

But I found a method and am ready to share it with you:

  1. launch the Safari browser and go through it to your profile,
  2. clamp on the picture and click Open in new tab,
  3. wait until it is fully loaded and then clamp again, just now click Save picture.

I tried to do the same operation in Chrome and it usually loads damaged pictures there. I have not tried it with other browsers.

Then you can send pictures to whoever you want and where you want. And by the way, the same operation can be performed with Odnoklassniki.

How to download GIF from Viber, WhatsApp?

Everything is much simpler here, because messengers initially have a function that allows you to carry out various operations with files.

If you want to save something, then just select the desired image and click the Save button. It appears in your album and then you can send it further.

I already spoke about viewing them on the device itself. Of course, you can make a jade and download a tweak, but I think you can get by with the application from the App Store.

That's about the situation if you want to save any gif on your favorite iPhone. The situation is not the best, but there is no other choice.

By the way, the same scheme also works with iPads. There is iOS, which means that you have to do exactly the same thing.

How to save Gif (gif) on iPhone or iPad in the Photo application

4. Open the Photos app and go to the tab Albums.

5. The saved GIF will be in the album Animated.

Limited support for GIFs was first introduced in iOS 9 (2015) at the same time as the iPhone 6s. Prior to iOS 11, GIFs worked only in Messages and third-party applications.

Other features of the 11th version of iOS include a seriously updated Control Center (“curtain”), a new Files application and a number of prodictivity updates for the iPad (Dock like macOS, improved multitasking, drag-and-drop drag and drop).

If #images is not in the program bar

Make sure #images is turned on.

  1. In the program panel, swipe left, then click the icon.
  2. Click Modify, then to add the #images program.

Make sure your keyboard is set to a supported language and region. Go to Settings> General and click on Language and Region.
