What you need to know about Live Photos on the iPhone 6s

0

The first tests of iPhone 6s start talking. This is once again John Gruber by DaringFireball presented a problem with the new Live Photos feature available in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Remember they record a video clip of three seconds before and after picture taken then to activate the animation of the photo by pressing the new 3D Touch screen.

John explains the process of Live Photos, which consists of two file formats, a photo in JPEG 12 Megapixels, and a video of three seconds. The latter is also composed of several superimposed images, 12.77 fps format 1440 x 1080.  These “pictures with life” can be viewed from any iOS 9 device and from Macs and can set them as live wallpaper on the iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.

However, Live Photos is a small problem: she can not detect the times when the user is bringing the iPhone to take the picture or when relocating iPhone in your pocket. What happens then? Live Photos that capture the up and down movement of the camera when the user is ready to take the picture and the effect gives a bad result. Apple is already working on a software update that will fix this problem.

According to official sources have confirmed the company, the next version of iOS Photos Live will run more efficiently. The tool will be able to detect the movement of the iPhone to capture only the scene that the user wants to photograph. Therefore, Live Photos will stop recording the times when the user lift the iPhone camera to take the picture.

He discovered these things when he transferred his Live Photo on her Mac when two files have appeared (EHD and MOV) – with a total weight 3 times higher than a photograph. Although Live Photos is perceived as a nice novelty in the various editors who received the iPhone 6s preview, it is also guilty of being very greedy and this will be felt among 16GB iPhone 6s owners. It will transfer them regularly to your computer to free up some space on your iPhone 6s. However, you can also disable this feature any time by pressing the Live Photos icon from the Photo application.

We do not have an exact date Live Photos will be available, but we expect this iOS update is to be released in the coming days.
