If you want to change something on the Lock and Home screens of your iPhone/iPad, you can easily give a customizable wallpaper to them. That wallpaper can be a still image from Apple’s gallery or your Photo Library, but you can also use Dynamic Photos (or Live Photos on some models) and then choose whether remain as still or dynamic image. Here is how to do that.

Changing your wallpaper is easy, just follow the below steps:
- First, launch the Settings app from your Home screen.
- Then, tap on Wallpaper.
