    I downloaded the first one to Dropbox, then saved it from Dropbox to my camera roll. But when you go in to Settings > Wallpapers it's not there to load for the home screen.

    I guess Apple only intended those for live wallpapers, not live photos. I don't see an option to upload it to Dropbox. I did, however, choose the "add to home screen" in Safari, and it created a bookmarklet on my home screen.


    How did you get it to Dropbox?

    In TapaTalk I tapped on the mp4 file and it offered to open in Safari. Once the mp4 opened in Safari I tapped the save button and chose Save to Dropbox.

    Yes I'm having the same problem. Under the apple wallpaper settings I don't see live. I only see still and Dynanmic
    I'm having the same problem. From the pic I could verify that my iphone dont have Live under Apple wallpaper
    I discovered that the live wallpapers (forced touch ones like the fish) only work on the lock screen. They've never worked on the home screen. It also depends on which iPhone you have... not all of them support it.

    I've also had to get use to the different terms between android and iphone. What Apple calls Dynamic, Android calls Live. A bit confusing if you're coming from Android like me lol.

    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?

    3D Touch has to be active. Turn on 3D Touch and it will fix it

    Do you have power saving mode on? I had the same problem until I turned batter saver off and then it worked.

    no it won't let me select live on the preview. Everything else works, just not the lock screen. It has highlighted still and won't let me select anything else.http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09...8b8eec1f44.jpg

    It was but even when I disable it, it still doesn't work .

    And btw, it was working yesterday and I had low power mode enabled yesterday so that's not a problem.

    The live wallpapers work when I preview them, but not when I set them
    I had the same problem, but I saw that live wallpapers can't be set when in low power mode. So check that.

    18mknig; if yours isn't working and you've made sure you have all settings correct and are not in low power mode, then there is something wrong with your phone. Make an appointment with your local Apple store with their Genius Bar.

    What you have to do it go into Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion click the button to off and see if you can swicth the buttons from Still to Perspective to Live. Once you put the image you want, just go back into settings amd tunr Reduce Motion back on if you like the sudden closing of pages instead of clicking back mutlpiple times to get back to one thing.

    Go to settings and turn off the low power mode! It should work because I just did it to my 6s rose gold

    More than likely your "Low Power Mode" is ON. With this setting ON, iPhone 6s WILL NOT allow Dynamic wallpapers to animate... such as the beta fish wallpaper.

    How you can tell you Low Power Mode is ON, and preventing you from selecting "Live Photo" after choosing which wallpaper you'd like:

    Settings > Wallpaper

    *under the screenshots of your existing lock and home screen* you will see:

    "Dynamic wallpaper and perspective zoom are disabled when Low Power Mode is on."

    THIS^ LETS YOU KNOW WHY YOU'RE UNABLE TO SELECT THE LIVE PHOTO OPTION when trying to set your lock screen wallpaper.

    Also, it is a good thing to note that Live Photo wallpapers can ONLY be set to the LOCK screen, and NOT the home screen.

    So, as long as you disable your "Low Power Mode" setting in Settings, you should be able to select "Live Photo" as your lock screen wallpaper!

    Everyone saying turn low power mode off obviously doesn't understand that if we're still asking how to do it, obviously it didn't work. I'm getting annoyed with everyone giving the same answers. I've tried every suggestion and is not working. I need actual help not someone copying the previous replies.

    Demanding help and putting down those who have already responded is probably not the most effective way to solicit responses to your question. Reset all settings in Settings > General > Reset. If that doesn't work then a full restore may be in order. If that doesn't work contact Apple Support.
