Last Updated: 2021. 07. 20

Live photos is an iPhone camera feature that brings your photos to life. Instead of freezing a movement in time with a still photo, iPhone camera captures 1.5 seconds before and after the photo when live photo feature is used. Currently, live photo is available on all iPhone 6s and later devices.

Compared with traditional photos, live photo is a breakthrough. However, when it comes to sharing a live photo, the animation is often lost. Besides, you can’t view a live photo on any other devices. That’s why many people choose to convert live photos into videos.
