    Same here. I've read through this thread and nothing suggested works. In fact, getting my wallpaper to animate live photos has never worked. Go figure. Will wait for the iPhone 7, I guess...

    Turn off Low Power Mode..select the live wallpaper then you can turn low power mode back on. But you can't apply a Live Wallpaper while in low power mode

    Live Photo: If you press the display while on the Lock screen, the wallpaper will animate. You need an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus to use Live Photo.

    This is probably a dumb question, but are you guys actually pressing the screen to activate the motion, or are you just watching and waiting for it to start moving? It'll only activate the motion while you're holding your finger on the lock screen, and it still only moves for a couple of seconds. I was expecting more too....

    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?

    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
    Turn off low power mode.
    I found the problem I had the same issue , if you are trying to select it on "Live Photos" your phone cannot be on low power mode at that time
    Do you have power saving mode on? I had the same problem until I turned batter saver off and then it worked.
    try offing ur Low battery mode.. it didn't work for me at first but it worked after I turned that off!!
    Turn off low power mode, I had the same problem and it worked.
    turn off low power mode!!!
    I had the same problem, but I saw that live wallpapers can't be set when in low power mode. So check that.
    Hey! Super late reply but I just figured out that only still background works on low power mode, make sure to turn it off for a live photo
    turn off low power mode, live photo won't work with it on
    Go to settings and turn off the low power mode! It should work because I just did it to my 6s rose gold

    disable your "Low Power Mode" setting in Settings
    You have to turn off low power mode
    Turn off Low Power Mode..select the live wallpaper then you can turn low power mode back on. But you can't apply a Live Wallpaper while in low power mode
    Turn off low power mode. Happened to me

    I guess no one found a fix yet...
    As long as you have battery and you aren't in the low power saver mode. You should be able to set the live photo option.

    I had this same exact problem. Make sure that low power mode is NOT on, because if it is for some reason it will not let you set live wallpapers.

    Basically your iPhone doesn't let you select live as an option when you're choosing a wallpaper if your phone is on low battery mode. Turn it off in settings and all the options should work!

    I don't know if anyone is still having issues with this but I figured it out for my phone.

    Make sure you charged the battery up past 50%. Then do a hard reset holding the power button and the bottom volume button. And make sure low battery mode isn't enabled. Should work now!

    You can't have low power mode enabled when you set it. But once you set it you can play the live regardless of power mode. So try to go back and reset it on regular power mode.

    It's about Low Power Mode. I had the same problem, when you close Low Power Mode, it allows you to choose live/perspective. And you can continue with Low Power Mode and the features will still work! (The live effects and all) Well it has been two years, hope you solved it!
