How to turn off Facebook auto-play videos on the iPhone app.

One solution is to turn on the ‘Auto-play on Wi-fi only’ option. To do this you will need to do the following steps on your iPhone:

Step 1: Go to Settings and locate ‘Facebook':

3. Finally, turn on the ‘Auto-play on Wi-Fi only’ feature:

Please note: as stated in the settings, this is only to turn off when not connected to Wi-Fi. Right now, Facebook, for whatever reason, do not allow you to completely turn off auto-play for videos.
