Animated GIF images are treated just like any other image when it comes to these images being synced to your iPhone. Your GIF animations must be saved in one folder, and this folder must be set as your iTunes sync folder for Photos. When you sync your iPhone with iTunes, the GIF animations saved on your PC will be transferred to your iPhone. You can learn how to get your GIF animations onto your iPhone in just a few steps.

Step 3

Click on your iPhone under the "Devices" section on the left side of the screen.

Step 4

Step 5
