The Steps to Sending a GIF on an iPhone:

  3. When the word Copy appears, tap it to copy your GIF.
  4. Open iMessage.
  5. In the text box, press down again until the word Paste appears.
  6. Click to paste your GIF (it will look like a still image, but once sent, it will animate).
  7. Congrats! You have successfully sent your first GIF iMessage.
