Use Live Wallpapers and bring your iPhone 6s/iPhone 6s Plus lock screen to life

December 7, 2015

While it is easy to make any Live Photo you capture with an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus into a lock screen background for those handsets, an interesting new app brings a number of fun animated options to select from.

Make your background come alive


There are more than 40 animated lock screen images to choose from.

Aptly named Live Wallpapers, there are more than 40 different scenes to select from. After opening up the app, you can easily swipe through all of the selections and see both the still image and animated version.

There are a number of choices like a beautiful fall scene complete with falling leaves and even a waving American flag.

After selecting which wallpaper you’d like to use, simply hit save. Then you’ll need to head to Settings and then Wallpaper to select the saved background from your Camera Roll. While the static image can be set as your background, it will only be animated on the lock screen. To do that, just 3D Touch your screen.


Live Wallpapers – Custom Backgrounds and Themes can be purchased now on the App Store for $0.99.

And just to note, while any iPhone user can download this app, it will only work on the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. You’ll also need iOS 9.1 or later installed.

I definitely enjoyed the wide variety of different scenes to select from, and hopefully the developer will continuing adding more with future updates.
