How to make a Boomerang on an iPhone using the Boomerang app or Instagram

Boomerangs are a popular way to share content on Instagram, both in stories and in permanent posts.

A Boomerang is a burst of photos that plays back and forth to create a video that continuously replays on a loop.

There are two ways to post a Boomerang to Instagram – users can post to Stories or to their Feed directly from the Boomerang app; or they can post to Stories using Instagram's built-in Boomerang function. Instagram does not have a built-in Boomerang function to post on the Feed.
