    Default Live Wallpapers 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?

    Default Live Wallpapers not working.

    Can you show a screenshot of Wallpapers in Settings?
    You don't have this?

    Have you tried a hard reset?
    Hold the top power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.

    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.

    I don't see that "perspective" option. Mine is set on "live" by default.

    Have you tried Reset All Settings?
    Reset All Settings
    Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.

    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

    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

    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
