Do you keep Live Photos on your phones?

    Curious to hear what other do, I like the ability push and hold Live Photos to play them back interactively, and it seems that once you transfer them to a Mac they lose that ability and just become movie files. Is there a way to later put them back on the iPhone and regain that level of interactivity? I need to transfer photos/videos to my Mac to free space on the 6S+ because I shoot so much.

    Thanks.

    It all depends on what OS you are running on your Mac. Only the latest will do these live photos.

    you may want to invest in icloud, which will store live photos. In fact, putting them on the mac almost seems like a waste of time knowing it doesn't keep them in the same format. Transferring them back transfers them as MOV files.
