Question: Safari not supporting images with webp format


Safari browser is not support WebP format, is there any reason for the same?

WebP was added to Firefox for desktop and Android, but it will not work in iOS. This is because Firefox for iOS works on Safari's WebKit engine.

Is there any way we can sort the issue

Hey there!

WebP was designed by Google for use in Google Chrome. Unfortunately, WebP is not supported in Apple's Safari web browser.

I really hope the Safari team decides to change this. Some developers are moving ahead with WebP without a fallback option since even Firefox supports it now. Safari and iPhone users are going to be left behind in 2019 if Apple doesn't make some changes.

If you want to, you can send Apple feedback. They won't answer, but at least will know there is a problem or a suggestion for change. If enough people send feedback, it may get the problem/suggested change solved sooner.
