With the new iPhone released, many people wonder how to change wallpaper on iPhone X. They found that Apple updated iPhone’s wallpapers, with more creative and wonderful pictures. Now let’s tell you how to use your new wallpaper.

Part 1: Set Wallpaper on iPhone X in Settings

If you want to use one of the built-in wallpaper images, you can choose among Dynamic, Still, or Live. The dynamic wallpaper displays different colored circles that float around the screen. Still wallpaper is static. Live wallpaper is best seen on the Lock Screen and will animate if you press hard on the screen, as if you're using 3D Touch.

Step 1: Open “Settings”. Tap “Wallpaper” > “Choose a New Wallpaper”

Step 2: Choose an image from “Dynamic”, “Stills”, “Live”
