IPhone Live Photo (iOS) is a feature that captures moments when registering photos, creating a kind of animated GIF. With it, you can send animated images directly to WhatsApp without the need for extra applications. That way, you can have fun with friends and leave unforgettable moments even more vibrant.
The feature is available for iPhone 6S users onwards and is very simple to use. The procedure was performed on the iPhone 8 Plus with iOS 11.4. See how to use the feature in the next step by step.
