I’ve been praying for a weather wallpaper on iOS since dynamic wallpapers becAme a thing in iOS 7, and the only thing that has changed since then has been the introduction of the OLED-black wallpapers with the release of the iPhone X.

pls. Pls. Can we have some more dynamic wallpapers (weather included)?

Yeah this isn’t really something to email Craig for. He’s a wonderful bloke, he does read and reply to emails - I’ve gotten one myself - but he has a flooded inbox I’m sure. There are better channels for this, like Apple’s feedback portal

Would such a thing be possible? Dynamic wallpapers are simple in comparison. Does Android have something similar?

Android has had similar things since at least 2011, I used to be very jealous of my friend’s HTC phone that had it. I doubt it would be that difficult, if anything it would be a question of whether having unique animations like that running in the background of springboard the whole time would negatively impact battery life. I imagine there’s a get out of Jail free card where the performance / battery life takes a hit and “it doesn’t meet the standards of an apple product”. Can’t blame them, but I’m sure it’s possible!
