When a live photo is received, it'll look like a normal photo, but with a special icon in the top left-hand corner. When you open the photo in preview, you'll see a button which you can click to view it in live action. However, if you try dragging and dropping the live photo on your desktop, it'll turn back to a normal image.
Of course, the new operating system is still in beta, so all of this is not yet available to the public. But, 9to5 reports it'll be released later this year.
Now that non-winking selfie just seems so pedestrian.
