Live Photo not Working on iPhone? Check the settings given in this article cause Live Photos is an iPhone camera App feature introduced in iPhone 6S and later all models (iPhone 7/7 Plus & later phone). Whenever iOS users open the iPhone camera App up to shoot a picture, the Live Photos feature auto turn ON while they of the App and open the camera app back, the same thing happens. 

Generally, Live Photos capture moments just before and after taking a picture with sound. Hence, it takes much more storage space than a still image, so definitely, the user feels uncomfortable. To disable/ Turn off live Photos on iPhone, iPad permanently. But now, it is available as Preserve settings in Apple’s latest iOS software update. Unluckily, we can not destroy or remove the Live photo option on the iPhone camera app. 

I hope apple understand the situation that Apple lover is waiting for! Start commenting in the box below to reach this discussion at the Apple iPhone & iPad developer discussion.

Note: Live Photos settings under Preserve mode only save your setting. That helps to take a live photo immediately on the launch camera app if it is enabled.

Live Photo is always enabled when you turn back to the camera app.

Enable Preserve Settings to Disable live Photos permanently on iPhone

Step 1. Open the Settings App on your iPhone home screen.
Step 2. Scroll down the screen to tap on Camera.

Open the settings app scroll the camera on iPhone

Step 3. Now, Under the Camera label Tap Preserve Settings.
Step 4. Turn toggle to the left side next to the Live Photo. So finally, you will be able to take proper photos! Because of this feature has been a pain.

Here, you can see there are three options mentioned below.

Photo Filter: Preserve the last filter, such as Chrome, rather than automatically reset to None

Camera Model: Preserve the last mode, such as Video or Square, rather than automatically reset to Photo.

So this turned off your Live Photo will stay off in the camera app until you did not disable Preserve Settings.

Live Photo ON under this Preserve setting means just a way to disable Live Photo in the camera app, and it doesn’t uninstall the entire feature out of the software.

  1. This works, sort of, but is far from permanent. Even with these settings in place, Live turns back on. I need a way to destroy it forever!
