Save Live Photo as Video iOS 16 on iPhone

The Live Photos feature of the iPhone is great for photography enthusiasts as it allows users to capture the image with live events and use it to capture the Live Photo as Loop, Bounce, Long Exposure and Live. Even I use Live Photos a lot to add a Long Exposure effect for the moving night light and waterfall. However, sometimes I want to save Love Photo as a video on iPhone.

Fortunately, iOS 16 has the feature to save Love Photo as video on iPhone. Therefore, it would be easier for iPhone user to save live photos as videos and then share them directly to non-iOS users. Because when you share the Live Photo with Android users directly, the Live Photo effect will be removed and displayed as the normal image. After installing iOS 16 on iPhone, many users couldn’t find the option to save live photos as videos on iPhone. That’s why we came to help with the guide.
