How to Convert Live Photos into Videos in iOS 13 on iPhone

Right from the moment I had an interaction with “Live Photos” on my iPhone 6s (way back in 2015), I fell in love with the images that come to life when long-pressed. They kind of liven up the memories thanks to the 3-second movement. However, “Live Photos” are almost impossible to share with others. But just when I thought the days of moving photos have lost the appeal due largely to the sharing limitation that Apple has imposed, I stumbled upon a slightly hidden feature that converts Live Photos into videos in iOS 13. And from what I can tell, the new implementation does look really cool. Haven’t given this all-new feature a shot as yet? Here is a quick way to turn live photos into awesome videos on iPhone.

Apart from adding some fun elements into live images, this feature has opened the door for them to be shared with anyone – even with the folks who are rocking Android devices. Knowing that we all love to share nice images, it seems apt to provide the needed freedom to the moving photos to travel across the board in their full-on moving glory. With that said, let’s take a look at how it works!

1. Launch Photos app on your iPhone and then head over to the Live Photos folder located inside the Albums tab.
