Are you tired of the same old static wallpaper on your iPhone? Well, did you know that you can set a video as your wallpaper?

That’s right! With just a few simple steps, you can breathe new life into your iPhone’s home screen. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of setting a video as wallpaper on your iPhone, so let’s get started!

Step 1: Choose the Perfect Video

Before we dive into the technicalities, it’s important to choose a video that you want to set as your wallpaper. It could be a stunning nature clip, a memorable moment from your favorite movie, or even a video of your pet doing something adorable. The choice is yours!

Step 2: Convert Video to Live Photo

In order to set a video as wallpaper on your iPhone, it needs to be converted into a Live Photo. A Live Photo is essentially a combination of an image and a short video clip. To convert your video into a Live Photo:

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone and search for “intoLive”.
  2. Download and Install the App.
  3. Open the intoLive App.
  4. Select “Video” in the App.
  5. Select the Video from Your Camera Roll.
  6. Edit the Video if Desired (Trim or Add Effects).
  7. Select “Save” or “Export” to Convert it into a Live Photo.


If you prefer using other apps or methods to convert your video into a Live Photo, feel free to explore different options available on the App Store.

Step 3: Set the Live Photo as Wallpaper

Now that you have your video converted into a Live Photo, it’s time to set it as your wallpaper. To do this:

  1. Open the “Settings” App on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on “Wallpaper”.
  3. Select “Choose a New Wallpaper”.
  4. Navigate to the “Live Photos” Album.
  5. Select the Live Photo you Created in Step 2.
  6. Adjust the Position and Size if Needed.
  7. Select “Set” and choose where you want to apply the wallpaper (Lock Screen, Home Screen, or Both).


If you want to use a different Live Photo for your Lock Screen and Home Screen, you can repeat Step 3 for each screen individually.

Congratulations! You have successfully set a video as your wallpaper on your iPhone.

Now every time you unlock your phone or swipe between screens, you’ll be greeted with an engaging and dynamic background that reflects your personality or interests. Enjoy!

Remember, setting videos as wallpapers can consume more battery power compared to static wallpapers. It’s recommended to use this feature sparingly or when connected to a power source for an optimal user experience.
