iPhone got Live Photos in 2015; Lumia had it since 2014

I remember reading an article that says Apple introduced a new feature called Live Photos at the iPhone 6S launch in September 2015. With Live Photos, the camera captures a few moments before the photo is taken to create a video effect. It is lovely to see.

Well, Nokia pioneered it in 2014 and Lumia owners have been enjoying the same feature since then – over a year before it arrived on the iPhone. On Lumia smartphones, it is called Living Images. It was first introduced in Lumia Camera version for Lumia 930.

Here is the official video introducing Living Images back in 2014:

Now, you know.


  1. I saw it recently on an iPhone 6s and thought “I’ve seen this before” – now I know where! A bit like Glance which I had on my Lumia 820 which has recently been introduced on Lollipop. Operating systems tend to borrow from others so nothing should surprise us any more.
