Ways to fix live wallpaper not working on iPhone 6s


Note: Keep in mind that live wallpapers work on the lock screen only, and not on the Home screen and to see the wallpaper moving, you need to use 3D touch and push a bit.


Solution No.1: Make sure that the “Low Power” is disabled

Low Power mode is a super useful feature, and when it’s enabled and your battery is under 20% it will temporarily reduce some features, so the live wallpapers won’t work. You need to make sure that this mode is disabled if you want live wallpapers to work normally. Go to Settings, tap on Battery, and see if the Low Power is activated (it is if the switch is green). Just move the switch to disable it.
