How to Convert a Video to a GIF on iPhone and iPad

Animated pictures known as GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format) have quickly become standard for sharing and discussing content on social media websites. Sometimes we must make a GIF from a specific movie segment for internet use. While this may necessitate a third-party program on Android, it can be accomplished natively on iOS.

Shortcuts App


The ‘Shortcuts’ software is already on your iPhones and iPads. This software has over 300 pre-made actions and allows users to make shortcuts for other applications like Contacts, Photos, Cameras, and more. Video clips, and even burst mode stills, can be transformed into Animations with this feature.

The Shortcuts software, which uses with the iPhone and iPad, is available for free from the Apple App Store.
