17 People Who Screwed Themselves Over Using The iPhone "Live Photo" Feature

A messy feature.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about a time the iPhone Live Photo feature captured an embarrassing/messy moment.

Here are the best submissions!

2. This girlfriend's fart was exposed:

3. This bestie captured a miraculous moment/line:

"My bestie unknowingly took a live photo of me and my newborn in the hospital. We discovered months later that not only was it a live photo, but there was also audio too, in which you hear me say, 'My diaper is cutting into my rolls.' Oh the miracle of life."

5. This girlfriend caught her boyfriend cheating:

"My ex used to send post-workout and bored-at-work selfies. He had no clue they were done in Live Photo mode. I always thought they were funny as I would see him un-pose (release the gut, cheeks back to normal, pull a face, etc.). Well, the Live Photo that turned him into an ex was one wherein a woman came in and kissed him in the live part. I just texted him back to ask the woman to explain to him what a Live Photo was."

6. And so did this girlfriend:

"My ex sent me a picture of a cute note he’d written me, trying to make me miss him. And then I watched the live video and could hear a girl in the background laughing. It turned out to be the girl he hooked up with the day after we broke up. We had been together for almost three years. I’m sure you can guess we are STILL broken up."
