  1. I have a problem. The live photo works in my photos, but when I try to make it my wallpaper it doesn’t work. It just looks like a photo on my wallpaper.

  2. I can say this categorically DOES NOT work on an iPad Pro. Followed the instructions to the letter, and the images only animate in the Live Photo app, NOT in my photos, nor on my home screen (and yes, I am pressing them) are you sure you’ve tested this with iPads…? If so, what am I doing wrong…?
