Play a Video in iPhone’s Photos App in a Loop

Did you know you can loop videos using just the built-in features in iPhone’s Photos app? While there’s no direct option to play a video in a loop, you can easily create a slideshow of your video and set it to loop. Let’s delve into the process.

Creating a Looping Slideshow in Photos

If you want to play a video in a loop in iPhone’s Photos app, follow these steps:

  • In the bottom-left corner, tap the share icon (an arrow pointing upwards).
  • From the share menu, select “Slideshow.”

Customizing the Slideshow

To make the slideshow loop and adjust other settings:

  • In the bottom-right corner of the slideshow, tap “Options.”
  • Under “Slideshow Options,” tap “Theme.”
  • Choose a simple theme like “Origami” for a distraction-free experience.
