iOS 10’s Safari improves animated GIF experience, prevents spammy videos from autoplaying

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 25, 2016

Among other enhancements, Safari on iOS 10 boosts the animated GIF experience for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users while preventing spammy autoplay videos from interrupting your browsing, according to the WebKit blog. On iOS 9, an animated GIF won’t start playing until it’s tapped.

With the new Safari, silent videos autoplay on webpages when they’re visible because iOS 10 respects their “autoplay” attribute when source video tracks have no audio or have been muted.

But if a video gains an audio track without user interaction, like those spammy autoplay video ads on websites, playback automatically pauses. Read More
