How to put a video as your wallpaper on an iPhone by converting it to a Live Photo
You can’t put a video as your wallpaper on an iPhone, but you can use an animated Live Photo.
Live Photos are photos that also capture footage for a few seconds after you take the picture.
With the third-party app intoLive, you can easily convert video clips into Live Photos, allowing you to then use these moving images as your iPhone wallpaper.
