Here’s how you can download and use iPhone X exclusive Live wallpapers on any of your other iPhone devices. The process is quick, easy to follow, and will get those stunning new Live wallpapers on your pre-iPhone X in no time at all.
Live Photos and wallpapers have been extremely popular with iPhone owners ever since Apple first introduced them with iPhone 6s. The idea of capturing an image and getting a dynamic experience has definitely resonated with a lot of iPhone owners. Even more is the fact you can use those experiences as Live wallpapers on the device to get some movement and animation rather than a still or flat experience.
Apple shipped a set of unique new Live wallpapers with iPhone X for making the device look and feel more fresh, meaning those who have parted with the $999+ for the company’s new flagship will immediately be able to benefit from those new visuals. In classic Apple fashion, these new wallpapers are available on iPhone X only, with older sets still available on the likes of iPhone 6s and 7. So where does that leave the rest of those who don’t want to miss out on these new wallpapers but who don’t want to, or can’t, part with that kind of money for the new hardware? Well, as you might expect, you can grab them for yourself and get them up and running on an older device. The following steps show you how.
Step 1: The easiest and most efficient way to do this is to download the free-of-charge imgur app to your device. If you already have that installed then great, if not, you can download it for free from App Store.
Step 2: Open this link imgur.com/gallery/oSQll on your device that takes you to the videos in Safari and then tap the “Open in App” option at the top of the page.
Step 3: When it opens in the imgur app, save the each video file to your Camera Roll from the app.
Step 4: Next, download the free app from App Store called intoLive. You will need to basically use this app to convert the videos you saved in previous steps into Live Photos. To do this, simply open those video files in the app one by one, then tap on them for preview, hit the right “->” arrow symbol on top right of the interface and then select “No repeat” option. Wait for it to generate a preview, and once that preview shows up, tap on “Save Live Photos” to save it to your Camera Roll.
Step 5: You are then able to go through the usual mechanisms of accessing the wallpaper on the device and selecting the newly downloaded live videos as Live wallpaper.
That’s it! You can now enjoy all those beautiful iPhone X Live wallpapers on your 3D Touch-capable iPhone 6s, 7 or iPhone 8.
