Live Photo on iPhone 6s

Looking for some terrific Live Wallpapers for your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. Thanks to a new third-party app, you can now download awesome animated wallpapers that come alive with 3D Touch. Here’s how to get started.

Download Live Wallpapers

First, download the Live Wallpapers app by Nick Lauer from the App Store. This is the first app we’ve found that offers animated wallpapers for 3D Touch, though there may be others out there that we didn’t spot. We expect many more to come later, too.

Find a Live Wallpaper

Once you have the app installed, open it up and you’ll find all the Live Wallpapers on offer. It’s not possible to view them all as thumbnails yet, unfortunately, so you’ll need to swipe through them to find one that you like.

When you have one, simply tap the “Save” button to add it to your Camera Roll.

Apply it!

You can now return to your home screen and open the built-in Photos app, where you’ll find the live wallpaper you just downloaded in the “All Photos” album. To apply it, open the image, tap the share button, then select “Use as Wallpaper.”

Before tapping “Set,” ensure the “Live Photo” option is highlighted.

And that’s it! You now have a new live wallpaper, which you can activate on the home screen using a 3D Touch press.

If you know of any other apps that offer Live Wallpapers, be sure to let us know about them down in the comments section.
