How to make live wallpapers for iOS
You want to set live wallpapers on your device iOS? Unfortunately you will have to settle for those present "standard" on Apple devices, since the mobile operating system of the "bitten apple" does not guarantee the same customization possibilities offered by Android.

To use this feature, open the app Camera, make sure the mode is activated Gallery (if not, do it), press on circlet located at the top to activate the feature live Photos and then press onanello located in the center of the screen (bottom) to take the photo to use as a live wallpaper.

Et-Voila! By exerting more pressure on the newly set wallpaper, the wallpaper will animate (only works for the lock screen)
