Step 1: Choose Your Live Wallpaper

Before we begin, let’s first find the perfect live wallpaper for your iPhone. There are numerous websites and apps that offer a wide range of options.

You can find animated wallpapers featuring nature scenes, abstract designs, or even popular characters from movies and TV shows. Once you have found the ideal wallpaper, download it to your device.

Step 2: Install the Wallpaper App

Next, we need to install a wallpaper app that supports live wallpapers on your iPhone. One popular choice is “Live Wallpaper HD” available on the App Store. Open the App Store, search for “Live Wallpaper HD,” and tap on “Get” to download and install the app.

Step 3: Launch the App

Once the app is installed, locate its icon on your home screen and tap on it to launch it. You will be greeted with a user-friendly interface that allows you to browse through various categories of live wallpapers.

Step 3a: Browse Categories

To find a specific type of live wallpaper, simply swipe left or right to navigate through different categories such as Nature, Abstract, Animals, etc. Take your time exploring these categories until you find something that catches your eye.

Step 3b: Search for Specific Wallpapers

If you already have a particular live wallpaper in mind or want to search for something specific, you can use the search bar at the top of the app. Simply type in a keyword related to the wallpaper you desire and press Enter.

Step 4: Preview and Select Wallpaper

Once you have found a live wallpaper that you like, tap on it to open a preview. In this preview screen, you can see how the wallpaper animates and get a better sense of what it will look like on your iPhone’s home screen. If you are satisfied with your selection, tap on the “Set” button.

Step 4a: Customize Wallpaper Settings

In some cases, the wallpaper app may offer additional customization options. For example, you might be able to adjust the speed or intensity of the animation. Take advantage of these settings to tailor the live wallpaper to your preferences.

Step 5: Set as Wallpaper

The final step is to set your chosen live wallpaper as your iPhone’s background. In the app, tap on “Set as Wallpaper” or a similar option. The app will guide you through the necessary steps to apply the live wallpaper to your home screen or lock screen.


You have successfully created a live wallpaper for your iPhone! Now, whenever you unlock your device or view your home screen, you will be greeted with an eye-catching and dynamic background that reflects your personal style.

  • To change or remove the live wallpaper in the future, simply repeat Steps 3-5 with a different wallpaper or choose a static image instead.
  • Remember that using live wallpapers may slightly impact your battery life as they require more processing power than static wallpapers.

Enjoy exploring different live wallpapers and adding a touch of creativity to your iPhone!
