    My iPhone SE isn't auto-playing videos in the Facebook app. I restored from backup from an iPhone 5 but I've tried reinstalling the app since so don't think that's the issue. I've disabled auto-playing from within the Facebook app, quit it, reopened, turned auto-play back on and no luck.

    There was a Facebook update today which I hoped would fix it but nothing.

    Not sure if this is an isolated Facebook bug to the iPhone SE or not, as auto-play will be disabled if there's low battery.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    So it's not doing it any time or only when the battery is low (and/or Low Power Mode is enabled)?

    I generally have auto-play off anyway (as is likely the case for many people, although certainly far from everyone), so it would be hard to spot something like that.

    Not doing it anytime, 100% or charging.

    I disliked auto-play at first, but I like how it plays silently, versus me tapping on a video and it blaring out even with my phone on silent.

    Another Facebook update, but still broken for me on my iPhone SE. Twitter autoplays fine.

    Surely I can't be the only one?
