How to Make a Video Your Wallpaper on iPhone 13

Got a favorite video that you can’t stop watching? Well, you can actually make it your wallpaper on your iPhone 13. It’s not as hard as you might think! Just follow these steps and you’ll have a live wallpaper that brings your screen to life every time you open your phone.

How to Make a Video Your Wallpaper on iPhone 13

Here’s how to make your favorite video your iPhone 13 wallpaper. This step-by-step guide will walk you through the process.

Step 1: Convert Your Video to a Live Photo

First, you need to convert the video into a Live Photo.

To do this, you can use an app like "intoLive" from the App Store. This app takes your video and turns it into a Live Photo that you can use as a wallpaper.

Step 2: Open the App and Select the Video

Open the intoLive app and select the video that you want to convert.

Make sure the video is saved in your Photos library. The app will prompt you to choose a video from your library, so just tap on the video you want.

Step 3: Adjust the Video Length

Use the app to adjust the length of the video.

Most apps have a time limit for Live Photos (usually around 5 seconds). Trim your video to fit within this limit. You can choose the exact part of the video you want to use as your wallpaper.

Step 4: Save the Live Photo

Save the Live Photo to your camera roll.

After adjusting, the app will convert the video and save it as a Live Photo in your Photos library.

Step 5: Set the Live Photo as Wallpaper

Go to your iPhone Settings, then to Wallpaper, and choose the Live Photo.

Navigate to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper. Select the Live Photo you just saved and set it as your lock screen wallpaper. Make sure "Live Photo" is selected instead of "Still" or "Perspective."

Once you complete all these steps, your iPhone 13’s lock screen will spring to life with your chosen video every time you press and hold the screen.
