    On the 6s/6s+, we can use Live Photos as lock screen wallpaper, and a long press starts playback in the lock screen. This doesn't work on the SE. There is no "Live Photo" segment in the UISegmentedControl.

    I tried on a 6+ and it doesn't work on that either, but there is no Live Photo support in the camera of that phone so it kindda make sense. But the SE can shoot Live Photos, so it's weird to not be able to use them as animated wallpapers.

    If you have to "press" the screen to animate the wallpaper, then it's not so "live" in any case, is it :) Why bother.

    Maybe it's limited to phones with the 3D touch capability.

    but to start playback in the lock screen it's long tap, not 3D Touch, so it's weird. But ya that might be the reason.

    Excellent Point... I thought the screen of Cozmo, blinking at me would be cool, but no-can-do

    What? No. In order for playback to start on the lock screen, it does indeed require 3D Touch.
