Woman catches cheating boyfriend with live photo function on iPhone and video goes viral on TikTok

A woman has revealed how she caught out her cheating boyfriend by sneakily using the 'live' photo function on her iPhone - which revealed a video of another girl falling back onto his bed. 

Influencer Serena Kerrigan, 27, who appears in the latest season of MTV reality series Siesta Key, shared the footage on her TikTok account, revealing that a man she was dating sent her a still image of his neatly-made bed, apparently unaware that his iPhone had also captured the woman he was with falling back onto it. 

'When the guy you're dating says he misses you, but then you click the live photo,' the New Yorker captioned the clip, while adding: 'Looks like you have some company.' 

The live photo function on iPhone, which is a standard feature on most models unless turned off by the user, captures 1.5 seconds of footage before and after a still image is taken. 

Whoops: A woman has revealed how she busted a cheating boyfriend by clicking on a 'live' photo he sent her, which revealed another girl falling onto his bed

Busted: Serena Kerrigan, 27, shared the live image video on her TikTok account, revealing that the still image showed the man's neatly-made bed - while the clip revealed the other woman 

'With Live Photos, your iPhone records what happens 1.5 seconds before and after you take a picture,' Apple explains on its website.

'What you get is more than a great photo; it's a moment captured with movement and sound. You take a Live Photo just like you do a traditional photo.'

In the case of Serena's unwitting unnamed boyfriend, the live function captured a blonde-haired woman falling back onto his bed and laughing in the one second after he snapped the photo he sent to his girlfriend. 

Unsurprisingly, the Siesta Key star's video quickly went viral, racking up more than 7.1 million views, and 1.3 million likes. 

Sneaky: Serena, who appears on MTV reality series Siesta Key, wrote alongside the video, 'When the guy you're dating says he misses you but then you click the live photo'

'Apple has your back!' one person joked, while another added: 'Apple said, "I got you sis."'

'Steve Jobs is the real MVP,' a third person wrote.  

Others voiced sympathy for Serena in the wake of her discovery, with one writing: 'Omg I could just feel the heart drop.' 

'My mom asked why I gasped and I had to explain to her what a Live Photo was and now she feels so bad for you,' another wrote.  

Serena was also flooded with requests from followers to do a follow-up video and explain the situation in full, with dozens asking whether she ended up confronting her boyfriend about the clip - and whether he tried to come up with an excuse.
