Live wallpaper is a hot favorite among the folks who want their device’ screen to look not just appealing but also come alive when touched. Considering how much it’s loved, I thought it’s apt to create a post on how to set up and use live wallpaper on iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus.
For those who are unfamiliar, “Live Photos” arrived in iOS 9 for iPhone 6s/6 Plus and was one of the biggest highlights of the smartphone. The photo animates 1.5 seconds of motion before and after the still. You can play it back with 3D Touch or a long-press on your iOS device.
