The Live Photo representation of the selected or captured photo.
- iOS 9.1+
- Mac Catalyst 13.0+
A Live Photo is a picture, that includes motion and sound from the moments just before and after its capture. On compatible devices, the Camera app captures all photos as Live Photos by default, but the
image parameter contains only the still image representation.
To obtain the motion and sound content of a live photo for display (using the
PHLive class), include the
k identifiers in the allowed media types when configuring an image picker controller. When the user picks or captures a Live Photo, the
editing dictionary contains the
live key, with a
PHLive representation of the photo as the corresponding value.
