Hey!

I bought a iPhone 6s this week. I've got a question about live wallpapers and it's if they drain iPhone battery or not.

It does, but the difference is negligible. I'd say it would drain maybe 3-5% more per day to have a live vs still wallpaper.

I think it is important to differ between dynamic and live wallpaper. Live wallpaper on 6s/6sp+ hardly take any extra batteri, because it doesn't move unless you force touch the lock-screen. So unless you force touch the lock screen a lot, it is basically comparable to a still image.
