    If someone installed iOS9 GM on iPhone 6/6+, Are the fish motion wallpapers shown in the event yesterday included in the dynamic wallpapers section?
    Or are they exclusive for the 6S? Thanks in advance

    No. Try are exclusive to the 6S devices only. Not sure why. I'm sure the 6/6+ could support them.

    Okay thank you. I can't believe I'll be stuck with bubble-gum inspired Live wallpapers until I upgrade my iPhone.

    Yep, that ones gone. Same wallpapers from beta 5 which can be found on Google if you search.

    I think you're the only one who actually uses live wallpapers.

    I'm sorry but I don't think you can say that nobody uses live wallpapers if you don't. I don't use them anymore right now because they became boring, but if we could have new ones then I (and many others) would use them again.

    You may not use them because it is boring to you but most people don't use them because they are paranoid that the animation would eat their battery even though Apple explained it wouldn't.

    I can almost guarantee you the "turn off animated wallpapers" will show up on tech sites new list of "how to save battery life on your new iPhone 6S". It's pretty sad really that these "experts" on tech sites make people cripple their phones to save minimal battery.

    Yeah , you're right about this. But the annoying part is why did Apple bother introducing dynamic wallpapers in iOS7, if they intended to never update them or allow 3rd parties to develop some?

    I really am questioning what Apple is doing these days to be honest. Here's my list so far:

    - Apple bragged about the screen real estate of the iPhone 6+ and yet all we got were a few native apps that displayed in 2 pane windows in landscape mode. Nothing has been done since to take advantage of the screen size.
    - Apple showcased the dynamic wallpapers in iOS 7 (I think?) and the only update to that feature in the last 2 years is exclusive to the 6S?

    Right and they are not really dynamic wallpapers but pre-installed Live Photos. Dynamic would suggest they move all the time. What I can see, what they give you will move for a few seconds then stop or loop over and over because you are pressing the display.

    The real miss on those wallpapers is, that the don't start and stop in the same location. Which means there is no fluid motion or transition when initiating the wallpaper a second time.
