    We saw some nice new motion wallpapers during the keynote. I'm very dissapointed to witness that iOS 9.1 beta didn't include any.

    They're not motion wallpapers. They're Live Photos set as wallpapers.

    Only the new 6s and 6s+ will see them as options to select. They are part of the Live Photos feature exclusive to the new phones.

    I meant those fish/flower things on black background. I think those aren't live photos.

    I'm hoping it will be available to older devices as well as the new dynamic wallpaperI'm really digging the fish wallpapers.

    They are 6S exclusives.

    Which seems ridiculous considering they said at the keynote Live Photos would be supported across the board, there's clearly no hardware requirement attached to it!

    They said that they can be viewed on other devices, but can only be created on the 6S devices. I don't think there is any reason why the 6/6+ cannot support the new dynamic wallpapers.

    I have watched a couple of "hands on" videos and I noticed a guy 3D touch'd the live wallpaper (the one with ink flowing) to animate it. It was brief but I saw it. So that confirms they are live wallpapers and exclusive to the 6s and 6s+. So much for dynamic wallpapers hope.

    I'll have to settle for still pictures of the fish ones, I really like them even without movement.
