iOS 16 Live Wallpaper Not Working: Why? Explained here

I often see the question in the Google Search trend that the iOS 16 live wallpaper needs to be fixed. As an iPhone user, it was so nice to have the best live wallpapers on iPhone lock and home screen. Of course, iOS 16 added multiple home screen features to create the best lock screen with widgets, colorful clocks, and depth effect wallpapers.

Still, iOS 16’s new lock screen customization feature cannot replace the authentic charm of dynamic and live wallpaper of the previous iOS upgrades. After updating to iOS 16, many users started complaining about the no live wallpaper or photos on iOS 16 update. Many wrote that live wallpapers suddenly disappeared from iPhone after iOS 16 update.

Why live wallpaper not working on iOS 16 on iPhone?

Initially, we also thought there might be a bug for specific iPhone models, but we later found out that Apple removed live wallpapers from the iOS 16 update. Yes that’s right.

Can I use Live Wallpaper on iOS 16 on iPhone?

Yes, you can still use live wallpaper on iOS 16 using the new depth effect feature on iPhone. Since the depth effect wallpaper gives a 3D look to the image, you can use this feature with 3D or portrait images to work as a live wallpaper on iPhone in iOS 16. Follow the steps below to do now:

  1. Tap and hold the space until it zooms out to the lock screen.
  2. Then tap the Plus icon at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Now you can see animated wallpapers such as Earth, Earth and Moon, Solar System and Clownfish wallpaper. Select a wallpaper.
  4. Tap Add in the top right corner.
  5. After that, tap Set as wallpaper pair and zoom out screen to apply.
