Having a phone or a tablet is all about being able to express yourself and your own sense of style on the go. Keeping a wallpaper based on your liking is an interesting feature of smartphones nowadays. While many complain how Apple doesn’t let its users customize their iPhones or iPads, you can still make an attempt to change the wallpaper depending on your own preference. However, you must know that the options available would still be from Apple’s Photo Library.
We’ll get through the process in a series of steps, so let us begin.
How to pick your wallpaper for your iPhone and iPad
Changing the wallpaper isn’t much of a task, it all depends on the picture you end up choosing. Follow these steps and you’re good to go.
- Using your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings.
- Now, tap the Wallpaper option.
- Look for Choose New Wallpaper.
- Here you will get the following options:
- Dynamic is basically an image from Apple’s stock photo library. The interesting thing about this image is how it has effects that slowly fade into view and are sensitive to your device’s movement. This applies on your iPhone.
- Still is simply a “still” image from Apple’s stock photo library.
- Live applies on iPhone 6S and later, it is a Live Photo that animates on a slight press.
- Photo Library is a picture from your very own library.
- Pick your Wallpaper and move to Preview Mode.
- This mode helps you select the way you want your image to be shown. You will be provided with the following three options.
- Still: The image you picked up will be put as a still image as the wallpaper.
- Perspective: The image of your choice will change ‘perspective’ a little bit when you will move the screen.
- Live Photo: As mentioned earlier, with iPhone 6S or later, if you have picked up a Live Photo image, after a slight press, you will be able to animate your image.
- Tap Set.
- Pick your desired option from these:
- Set Lock Screen
- Set Home Screen
When you will go back to your Home Screen, you will be able to find your shiny new wallpaper there.
Other options include changing the wallpaper from Photos app directly, but this method seems easy enough to follow.
