@Lilybird: Hi there. Live Focus Mode is still there, however it has been renamed Portrait Mode, and should be visible by swiping over to 'More' on the Camera home screen. I hope this helps.

Post update, live focus via portrait mode works only on faces, is there a way to live focus objects (it was possible pre update)

agreed. Live focus isn't now called portrait mode, it has been removed and portrait mode doesn't do the same thing.

Portrait mode does not have the option to adjust the focus/blur  after taking the photo. Only by selecting the blur effect before taking the photo

Portrait mode works for me on all objects for live focus. However, on the right hand side there is a yellow circle, click on that as you might have 'Big Circle Face' selected instead of 'Blur'

After taking the photo, click on it in your camera roll and at the bottom of the image it'll say 'Change background effect' click that and you can use the slider to change the amount of blur.
