iPhone 6S live photos iOS 9 feature

How to capture live photos on iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus?

So, far we have seen photos, videos and selfies with the latest iPhones. But now, it’s time for Live Photos.  We can say this photo as a small video clip or gif image. The moment of a particular element that might be living or non-living can be shown in short in these photos.

The next question in mind is “Where can we find this feature?” this feature was provided as part of the release of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. You can easily capture these images as if you capture a normal image. The procedure is quite simple.

iPhone 6S live photos iOS 9

Take your iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus into hand and tap on Camera app in your phone. Here you can find a set of options on the header menu bar. Among the list of options available, you can find a new icon which is circular in shape and surrounded by several circles. Tap on this circular icon to turn your Photo mode to Live Photos. If you want to turn off this mode re-tap on the same circular icon.

When you tap on the circular icon the live mode gets enabled on your iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus. Select the object that you want to capture and tap on the camera shot icon (filled circular icon). This will capture the motion of the object. All these captures images get stored in the Photos app and you view these photos at any time.

Tap on the recently taken photo to check how the motion is capture. Even though it captures very short motions it really gives an amazing feel. You can even use these Live Photos as your wall papers/screen savers instead of using the regular and default wall papers on your iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus.
