Fun iPhone trick can liven up your lock screen by making any video your wallpaper – here's how to do it

If you're a big fan of a particular video, there's a quick way to make a clip of it a live photo on your iPhone lock screen.

Live wallpapers work like live photos or GIFs and they're a fun way to make your lock screen more exciting.

How to set video as lock screen on iPhone

You'll need an iPhone 6S or above (excluding the iPhone SE) for this trick.

Apple has a selection of stock live wallpapers but it's more fun to set your own.

If you have a live photo in your Photos app you want to use then just open it, click the button in the bottom left hand corner and scroll to "Use as Wallpaper".

Click this and it should automatically appear as a live photo wallpaper unless you turn it off.
