    Does anyone know of an app or a way to have my lock screen wallpaper automatically change once a day... Or at any interval even, without jail breaking?

    Unfortunately, such an app wouldn't be approved by Apple-- third party apps can't access most settings and such.

    You can set wallpapers from some images in other apps but the app can't automatically do it for you per Apple's restrictions imposed on developers.

    Hope this helps.

    That's interesting that Apple wouldn't allow it, but if you want to keep it to yourself, here's a quick little bit I wrote in AppleScript. Left running, it changes the wallpaper to an image file 1 hour later. Someone else can dress it up a bit with say, looped customizable delays and randomized image selections.

    Code:
    delay 3600
    tell application "Finder"
    	set desktop picture to "Macintosh HD:Library:Desktop Pictures:Beach.jpg"
    end tell

    So now it's 2017 and fast approaching 2018 and every other device except Apple can do this, even on a retarded Nokia windows phone they have the BING screens to change daily yet, Apple still offer you the basically shitfest of a wallpaper to look at until the next update of shiftfest with the next IOS
