Apple Live Photos API:
When the iPhone 6s was released in 2015, the company also made an announcement about Live Photos. It is picture when someone tap on its screen becomes 1.5 seconds video.
Apple defined Apple Live Photos API as,
Live Photos allows you to relive your favorite memories with movement and sound. Take advantage of the new Live Photos API and let users enjoy these moments in your web app.
Phil Schiller announced the new iPhone camera tricks, but he talked mostly about the Apple’s new app API that turns your sweet memories into the little short video and automatic GIFs.
Every picture that a person takes with iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, is by default also a Live Photo.
According to the official documentation:
This will be supported to all iPhone products being used as wallpaper on iPhone and Apple watch. It is not a new idea but the Apple took this far away beyond talks.
Google has already made its Motion Stills named software the will the same thing. But it’s awkward and contradictory but also a great counter to Live Photo.
The new iPhones are coming with 12MP camera and the Apple Live Photo api will take up little more space than normal, and you going to fill your memory faster.
