Bumping the megapixel count from 8 to 12 is just a small part of the story which Apple has managed to throw in as part of the entire iPhone 6s package. The Cupertino giant also brought to the fore Live Photos, which records a small 3-second clip along with the photo you’re taking, giving life to your already-brilliant snap. But there’s a problem with Live Photos: they take up twice as much space as a regular photo and it absolutely hammers down the camera performance when it comes to low-light situations. If you want to avoid being in either one of those aforementioned situations, then here’s how you can turn off Live Photos in no time.

How To Turn Off Live Photos On iPhone 6s

1. Launch the stock Camera app on your iPhone 6s or your iPhone 6s Plus.

2. At the top you should see a symbol that looks more or less like a dart board. That’s the Live Photos toggle switch. Simply tap on it to turn it on or off. When the button is yellow, it notes that the feature is ON. When white, it notes the feature is OFF.

That’s all there is to it. With a press of a button, you can turn Live Photos on or off on your iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. If you have a base model, 16GB iPhone 6s, then we highly recommend that you use the feature a tad bit sparingly to save some space on your device. And be sure to turn the feature off especially if you’re planning to take a photo in low light.

Live Photos is an absolutely wonderful feature to have on the iPhone 6s, and it adds a lot of character on top of what is already a beautiful snap. But while the feature is a bonus to have in a lot of cases, it still has its caveats, especially the two which we mentioned above.

The overall camera performance of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is stunning to say the least, and in our tests, we’ve found out that the rear camera sensor does wonders in the photos and videos department. We’re quite certain that in the year to come, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will definitely prove to be the favorite go-to camera for aspiring photographers on different social media outlets such as Instagram and Flickr.
