Live Photos is a neat new feature on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. With Live Photos you’ll see about three seconds of animation when you press down on a photo. But did you know that you can use a Live Photo as your lock screen wallpaper? And yes, it will animate if you press down on it.
To use a Live Photo as your lock screen wallpaper, just do the following:
1. Tap on Settings
2. Tap on Wallpaper
3. Tap on Choose a New Wallpaper
4. Tap on Photos
5. Tap on your Live Photo
6. Tap on Set then tap on Set Lock Screen
Now your Live Photo will appear on your lock screen.
To see your Live Photo animate, just press down anywhere on your lock screen.
Live Photos add a whole new wrinkle to lock screen wallpaper!
I used a Live Photo of one of my parrots, and it’s quite funny to see her moving on my lock screen when I press down on it. Live Photos as lock screen wallpaper can be a fun way to freak out people who don’t know about that feature, they never expect to see your lock screen wallpaper move!
