How to Post 3D Photos to Facebook on iPhone
Facebook recently started rolling out 3D Photos for iPhone users. Problem is, not everyone has it yet and you want it. Thankfully, Apple-industry legend, Sam Levin, found a path and posted the instructions for us all.
To add 3D Photos to Facebook on your iPhone
- Launch the Facebook App
- "Like" the Facebook 360 Page on Facebook (this is the trick!).
- Force Quit the Facebook app on your iPhone.
- Relaunch Facebook and create a new post. You'll see the "3D Photo" option in the list of things you can add to your post.
Facebook will only use Portrait Mode photos for its 3D Photos option. Portrait Mode is currently supported by the Camera app on iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.
Edit, December 3, 2018: The iPhone XR can take Portrait Mode photos but, as of December 3, 2018, Facebook has not yet updated their app to include this model in their lists. For that matter, the iPad can view and contain Portrait Mode photos in its library, and yet Facebook's app also won't let that device post Portrait Mode photos. Go figure.
I followed step by step. It didn’t work. I have an iPhone X. Any ideas??
I tried this too but it didn't work. Will it just not work with the XR?
Indeed, that seems to be the case. Hopefully a future nondescript Facebook update will address this for us all!
Can you remove the XR from your site about 3D photos as it can’t be done users on facebooks 360page day you need a duel camera to do this on Facebook

They never said that you can use XR for 3D photos they were saying then opposite they were saying despite it having a portrait mode you are still unable to use it on Facebook i two find it frustrating that you can’t do it on any phone or any computer I share your frustration. This is a response to someone who asked them to take xr off the tutorial as you can’t take 3D photos on Facebook but I was explaining that that’s exactly what the tutorial mentions that you are not able to use XR.
I was looking for an application which creates 3D like photos similar to what Facebook allows to post from iPhones (aka 3D Photo).
Checked tons of apps and it seems like only this one does the trick on Android
Oh, almost forgot - you need to take a picture in Portrait mode and open/find it with/in the app.
It even allows to share it. But doesn't allow to preview in Facebook
