Are you tired of dull, boring wallpapers? Can’t find a suitable alternative anywhere? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Two words: Live Wallpapers. It’ll brighten up your lock screen and give you bragging rights at a party. Activating live wallpapers on iPhone is simple: touch and hold anywhere on the lock screen and watch your wallpaper come alive. Apple has given this feature to iPhone 6s and later handsets. So, even if you are on an older generation device, you can still get your wallpapers to come to life.
iPhones come with Stock live wallpaper options, which you can find in the phone’s settings. But why look at these stock options when you can also use the live photos taken from your phone’s camera? Once set, touch and hold anywhere on the lock screen and see your photos turn into a video.
There are thousands of live wallpapers available on the internet these days, but I like to use my live photos for a more personal touch. Here’s how you also can do that:
- Open Settings.
- Scroll down to Wallpaper, then Choose a New Wallpaper.
- Tap Live if you want to select from Apple’s pre-installed list, or else click on the Live Photos album.
- On the Preview page, make sure Live Photo is highlighted at the bottom of the screen.
- Toggle Perspective Zoom on or off according to your needs.
- Select Set.
Your animated wallpaper is ready. Touch and hold anywhere on the lock screen to activate it. Looks fancy, right? Now go ahead and flaunt it!
