Apple's latest flagship handsets, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, are the first to include the ability to take Live Photos. A Live Photo is a combination of up to a three-second .mov file and a still .jpg file that is taken automatically when you press the shutter button in your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus camera app. It grabs up to 1.5 seconds of 960x720 video before and 1.5 seconds of video after you tap the shutter button.
The camera app on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus automatically starts recording the moment you open the app. Then, after you tap the shutter button, it saves only that 1.5 seconds beforehand and discards the rest.
That means, if you open your camera app and leave it open for a few minutes, your iPhone will be recording video the whole time. However, once you tap that shutter button, everything recorded prior to 1.5 seconds beforehand will be deleted.
To help you get the most of Live Photos, we've put together this guide for how to get the best Live Photos, and what to do with them afterward.
How to Take a Live Photo
Most iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices have Live Photos on by default. However, there have been cases where the feature is off.
Open the Camera app on your iPhone.
Tap the Live Photos icon in the center-top of the screen between HDR and the timer. It looks like a set of concentric circles.
You will know when Live Photos is on when the icon is highlighted in yellow.
The word "Live" will also appear at the top of the screen. This label will remain on until 1.5 seconds after you tap the shutter button. It signifies that the video recording is complete.
Your Live Photo is automatically stored in your Photos app, just like traditional photos are for non-iPhone 6s or 6s Plus users. However, when you use 3D Touch on the screen, they come to life.
