How to turn Live Photos on and off on iPhone

One of the iPhone’s coolest features is Live Photos, which lets you capture up to 1.5 seconds of video and audio before you take a live photo.

It’s a fun tool that allows you to look at exactly what you were doing moments before you captured a particular moment.

However, as unique as this feature is, some people find it distracting when they are scrolling through their photo albums. Or the Live Photo function is on by default without you realizing it, and you’d rather turn it off.

This is why the iOS16 update introduced by Apple makes it very easy to turn off the feature if you wish.
