  • Select Set Both or Set Lock Screen – Decide whether you want to set this photo as both your lock screen and home screen wallpaper or just one of them. Tap on “Set Both” or “Set Lock Screen” accordingly.

If the photo is in your Camera Roll, tap on “Photos” at the bottom of the screen to access all your photos.

  • Select – Scroll through your photos and tap on the desired photo to open it in full view.

Step 3: Adjust and Confirm

Once you have selected “Set Both” or “Set Lock Screen”, you will see a preview of how your chosen photo will appear as your featured photo. You can adjust its position and size by dragging and pinching with your fingers until you are happy with the result.

Note: The top portion of your selected photo may be hidden by the time, battery status, and other icons. Keep this in mind while positioning it.
