How to Post Live Photos to Facebook from iPhone Running iOS 9

Facebook app update brings the live photos feature for iPhone and iPad users. Here’s the guide on how to use it and also how to view live photos in the Facebook app.

The Facebook app recently received an update and along with it came the live photo feature. The new feature is currently limited to iOS 9 devices on iPhone or iPad only. If anyone views your profile from a desktop or a Mac, they will see a still image.

Here we will guide you on how to use this new feature. The process is almost identical to uploading a still photo, there’s a catch that you shouldn’t forget. After uploading the picture, you will need to tap on “Live” only then it will turn out to be animated. Check the guide below for complete details.

How to Post Live Photos to Facebook from iPhone/iPad

Step #1. The very basic requirement is to have the updated Facebook app. After updating, open the Facebook app from the home screen.

Step #2. Once you are in the news feed section, tap on Photos.

Step #3. Select the live photo that you wish to share. Unfortunately, there is no indication, you’ll need to remember which photo is live and which is not.

Step #4. After you select the live photo, tap on Done.

Step #5. Here’s the tricky part, after you tap on the Done button, tap on Live located at the bottom-right side of the screen. If you don’t tap it, Facebook will take the still image.

Step #6. After that, you can edit, add a caption, and tap on Post when you are done.

It’s very simple; all you need to remember is to tap the Live button. Viewing a live photo in the Facebook app is almost similar to viewing live photos of iPhone 6s. The only condition is that you will need to access the photo inside the Facebook app.

How to View Live Photos in Facebook on iPhone and iPad in iOS 9

  • If you are using iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, then 3D Touch the image to bring it to life.
  • If you are using an earlier version of iPhone or iPad with iOS 9 then just touch and hold the image to see it in live mode.
