Unlike in iOS 10, when you save GIF in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad, it no longer turns into a typical still image. Instead, it continues to remain in its original form. Hence, you can use those funny images to light up your messaging time whenever you want.

The stock Photos app has got a special album “Animated” which houses all of your saved GIFs. You can easily manage those wonderful images just like any other photos. Personally, I'm going to create a huge library of awesome GIFs in the photo library and unleash them during the messaging time. Really! Enough talk, let me show you how you can save and view GIFs in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad.
