TechnologyFun iPhone trick can liven up your lock screen...


If you’re a big fan of a particular video, there’s a quick way to make a clip of it a live photo on your iPhone lock screen.

Live wallpapers work like live photos or GIFs and they’re a fun way to make your lock screen more exciting.

How to set video as lock screen on iPhone

You’ll need an iPhone 6S or above (excluding the iPhone SE) for this trick.

Apple has a selection of stock live wallpapers but it’s more fun to set your own.

If you have a live photo in your Photos app you want to use then just open it, click the button in the bottom left hand corner and scroll to “Use as Wallpaper”.

Click this and it should automatically appear as a live photo wallpaper unless you turn it off.

Alternatively, you can turn a video into a live photo.

Find a video of your choice on your iPhone.

Download and open a popular app called intoLive.

Once you give it access to your camera roll you can upload any video and the app will make it into a five second long live photo.

You can select which part of the video you want in the live photo and add effects.

When you’re happy click “Make” in the top right.

When it’s done, click “Save Live Photo” and it should go into your Photos app.

Then you can follow the steps for a live photo wallpaper mentioned above or go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper.

This will allow you to select your newly made live photo and click “Set to Lock Screen”.

Just hold the lock screen down and your live photo will play.
