    What’s ridiculous is that they still don’t have a way to save live photos to finder.. they just save as a regular jpeg, AND a mov video file. They’ve been around long enough that they should be able to be saved as one file that contains the still and the live photo and played back on your Mac.. and they should also release a tool to play them back on a PC.
