What is Live Photos on iPhone?
Live Photos on iPhone is a feature that combines several still images to create three seconds of motion. The result you get is not only your picture but also the scene enhanced by movement and sound as you tap and hold the image on your device.
Live Photos are often mistaken for a video, but in reality, it’s a High-Efficiency Image File (HEIF) format. Apple’s chosen file name extension for this format is HEIC which stands for High-Efficiency Image Container.
The format is an updated variant of the High-Efficiency Image Format (HEIF), traditionally used by Apple across its mobile devices.
