When it comes to customization, nothing seems to beat Android. On Android, you can use icon packs, launchers, custom skin, themes, and video wallpaper for customization. However, when it comes to the iPhone, choices become limited to only two – widgets and live wallpaper.
You might have seen your friend holding an Android device and using a video wallpaper. Now, video wallpaper is unique, and you can’t get it on iOS due to some limitations. If you want to set Video as wallpaper on iPhone, you need to get your video converted into a Live photo.
Converting a video into a live photo does make some difference; it still gets the job done pretty well. Even if you convert video into a live photo, you need to tap and hold the screen to bring the video wallpaper to life. Another thing is that the video wallpaper works only at the lock screen, not the home screen.
