    It's because you need to press the image to get it moving with your finger. Apple didn't put it in dynamic something stupid I guess to demonstrate the use of 3D Touch

    Yeah, that doesn't do anything, either...It's like the music player being stuck on "shuffle"...it doesn't affect everyone, just enough to be all over the internets.

    found the fix.. Live wallpaper doesn't work on low power mode. Turn off low power mode then set your live Walpaper once again and it should work

    Mine doesn't work either. I was going to start a thread before I saw this one. Wonder what the heck is going on? Seems to maybe be widespread? If so, I wonder if the next update will address it?

    Yup. Just got my new iPhone today, updated it to latest version, no powersaving mode active, have reset settings & watched phone restart - STILL no "live" aspect to the "Live" wallpapers, and all three settings were accessible.

    Hope they fix this soon - the effect on the display models at the VW store looked great. Sucks it's not working!

    whenever i go to set a live wallpaper for my lock screen it doesn't let me choose live on the options. It only has still. I really want to use them, any help?

    This happened to me too. I changed the wallpaper to a regular one, and then I went back and changed it to a live one again and it started working. I hope this helps. It must be some software glitch. Also, mine does work in low power mode as well

    I'm genuinely shocked how incompetently Apple handled this feature. I mean, seriously, if we have to hold down on it what's the point? We'd like to see it move whenever we wake the phone, not have to go out of our way to press down on the screen before unlocking. If we didn't want to see it move on its own.. Get this... We'd use a static wallpaper!
    My thoughts exactly. I guess I was thinking it would work like the live wallpapers do in android. I mean what else would you think "live" meant anyway? If you have to hold down on the screen it's a pointless feature. Please correct me if I'm wrong....

    I agree. I tried the live wallpaper for a minute just to see how it worked and was immediately over it. I'm sure that Apple's main concerns are battery life and performance so they require the user to press and hold on the lockscreen. There isn't any value for me.

    I knew from day one what live wallpapers would be like. I knew that using live photos for live wallpapers woukd need a press with the finger. They never said otherwise. If you don't like using it, then don't. I don't use them. I prefer regular wallpapers I make or find. But if I create a good live photo, I'll use it. Kids like it.

    Note: If you edit or change the live photo in any way, it won't work.

    On my phone, I can set apple's live wallpapers and they work when I press on them. But when I do the same for my own Live Photos, when I set them for my wallpaper, they don't actually move when I press.

    So apple's live wallpapers work, my Live Photos don't
    May work best with portrait style photos. Be sure it's turned on in your camera.

    I had this problem with my phone and to fix it I turned off my low power mode. After turning it off in settings, it allowed me to choose the live photo option and now it works just fine!!

    I had the same exact problem and then found out that when low power mode is on dynamic, live photo and perspective zoom are disabled.
    first check if you have your phone on low power mode BC mine is most of the time is so:
    *SO SIMPLY TURN OFF LOW POWER MODE*
    it worked with me. Doesn't have to do with software or anything

    Live photo's work on my lock screen, but not on my home screen. I'm running iOS 9.3 beta 5, so I figured it was just an issue with the beta.

    Have you tried toggling "reduce motion" off in Accessibility? That's worked for some. I don't have any issues with it. I assume you mean in the photos app.

    Reduce Motion is already off... but I toggled it on and back off just to check if that would work. It didn't. I'm using the Live wallpapers that came with the 6s (the beta fish and the clouds). It's so odd that the same Live wallpaper works on the lock screen but not the home screen.

    OK. Yeah those are just for lock screen. I have a thread somewhere I posted the fish. I'll look.
