How do live photos work?
Live Photos was introduced in iOS 9 as a special feature for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The way Live Photos works is to capture a MOV video file every time you snap a photo with your iPhone. The MOV file includes three seconds of video and sound, so when viewed on a supported device, the image seems to come to life.

Does iPhone Live Photo reduce quality?
Answer: A: That is normal and cannot be changed. When you take a Live Photo, your iPhone or iPad will save a very high quality still frame as the key photo, the moment you take the photo, and a video clip. You will get the best results, if you take the Live Photo at exactly the right moment for the best still image.
