Does iOS 16 have live wallpaper?

This is arguably one of the most intriguing upgrades ever, with capabilities ranging from infinite texting to sending messages in Siri to additional enhancements to Focus, Maps and Mail. The release of iOS 16 coincides with the release of a number of new devices in September, including the AirPod Pro 2 and the most recent Apple watches. Have you tried long-pressing your lock screen to get a live wallpaper after updating to iOS 16 and found something strange and your live wallpaper stopped working? I’m sure most users have tested it, wondering where the live wallpaper went. If you are wondering the same thing about live wallpaper, allow me to clear it up for you.

Apple has chosen to end the ability to use live photos as wallpaper. The recent update removed the live wallpaper, which several customers did not like. Several social media users have stated that Apple’s most recent iOS 16 upgrades do not include their favorite live wallpaper.

Many customers took to Twitter to express their outrage and ask Apple support why this option was withdrawn. There is no word on when the service will be restored, but users can comment or ask questions about it.

Apple has completely overhauled the way you set wallpaper in iOS 16 and added tons of tweaks. If you go to your iPhone’s settings app to change the wallpaper, you will find that there is no option to change your home screen background to a live wallpaper.

That’s it, folks! What do you think of this update where live wallpaper is discontinued by Apple? Do you think this feature should come back? Well, if you manifest it then, according to some sources, Apple might consider bringing back live wallpaper with the iOS 16.0.2 update. Until then, users should wait and try to switch to dynamic wallpapers or other customizations of their choice.

Until next time, with another topic. Until then, Toodles.
