    I was at one of the Apple Store and I was checking out the 15" rMBP in the demo laptops kept on the shelf and I saw one photo in the photo section of the rMBP which was a live photo and on clicking the live button on the photo it would make movement the same way as it does on an iPhone 6S, I asked the guy there that how does this thing work,how can I view a live photo on a rMBP he had no idea so we decided to do a live thing he took my picture on the iPhone 6s in the live mode and air dropped it on the rMBP but my picture would not stutter or move it was not livephoto as was the case on the demo content present on their rMBP ! What would be that case ? Can a live photo taken from an iPhone 6s be viewed in a rMBP also ? If yes how can we do this ?

    (You're really posting in the wrong forum. Should be under OS X.)

    As far as I know, the only applications that support live photos on OS X so far are Photos and Messages.

    So when I tried doing that taking a live photo from an iPhone 6S and exporting it to Photos APP in the rMBP it would still show me as a still picture and not as a Live photo !!

    How are you getting it onto your Mac and what version of OS X are you running

    Air dropping it ! I tried this at the Apple Store (Because I don't own a iPhone 6s yet) So don't know which version of Mac OS they had installed on their Mac ! I think the one before El Kapitan !

    You don't have a 6s yet? What are you taking the live photo on?

    We took a live photo from a iPhone 6s in the Apple Store and simultaneously I viewed another live photo from the demo photos in the photo app of a 15" rMBP in the Apple Store and I want to find out how to do it ! So rest assure I am talking about a live photo only taken on a iPhone 6s in the Apple Store :)

    - You need El Capitan or later for Live Photos.

    - If it didn't work in Photos and it was El Capitan, then good question. I don't personally own a Live photo capable iPhone, so I can't test it.
