    Yes.
    for some odd reason, Apple chose it as the default. Sorta like forcing you to take a slow mo as default, instead of giving you the choice.
    It's easy to turn off, but next time you want to take a pic, there it is, and, if you have to delay your shot while you turn it off, you're screwed.
    It's an APP not an operating system.
    AND they put major screws on you by obscuring the possible out by hiding it under layers of settings with an absurd mockery of a confusing description. This makes Apple sound undependable
    Settings>
    Photos&Camera>
    Preserve Settings>
    Live Photo > Turn ON
    "Preserve the Live Photo Setting, rather than automatically reset to Live Photo turned on"
    There needs to be a "DISABLE Live Photo" button. Or, this sort of cute photo trick (like bubble or photo distortions) should be an app added by choice.
    When I tap to turn live photos off in the camera app, it stays off until I tap on again. I don't see that "preserve setting" in my settings > photos and camera.

    Like I said, it's not on mine! Was it added in 10.2? Never mind. I see it on my old iPhone 5. My 6s Plus is still on 10.1.1.

    It's not a default. It's an option you can choose or not. If you don't want to use it, turn it off.
    Actually it is a default. I’ve tried turning it off and it keeps resetting to Live Photo. Even with the Preserve settings turned ON. VERY ANNOYING

    As commented earlier, you can go to settings < photos camera < preserve settings < switch the live photo setting on. When you turn live photo off that setting will be saved instead of going back to default Live Photos on the next time you open the camera.
    That’s not working for me. It still resets to Live Photo.

    Have you tried Reset All Settings?

    Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.

    Then see if it turns off and stays off.
    You could also use a 3rd party camera app, like Camera+. I use ProCamera as my default. It does more.

    Thank you!
    I tried this and my phone still goes back to the live setting. If I try to take a photo while using imessage it automatically reverts back to live photo even though I have turned it off in preserved settings. It is so annoying. Does anyone have any idea how to stop this? Or a way to get the camera option not to appear in iMessage?

    I must have turned mine off often enough because it enabled that preserve feature without me doing it. The Live photos by default was quite annoying. Happy it’s off now.
