    Perspective Wallpaper consumes significantly more battery life than Still Wallpaper?

    That surprises you? If it matters to you, use a static wallpaper and turn on reduce motion.

    What’s a perspective wallpaper?! It’s just a static image that moves a bit depending on the gyroscope on your phone. That’s it. Don’t think it uses up any extra battery.

    I do not choose "Still" because in this option a stain appears in the upper right corner of the screen and in "Perspective" the wallpaper is without this stain, being aesthetically more beautiful, as it is stamped on the photo of the iPhone box. And I love this wallpaper!

    That’s just different crop of the same image. The image itself doesn’t change. There’s no different mechanism involved in both types other than movement of the image itself based on the gyroscope. It doesn’t require any extra hardware capabilities to do this. So same battery life.

    Tks!

    Yes, I noticed it is the same image but no crop / zoom. I keep thinking that "Perspective" consumes more battery power because by activating Power Saving Mode, this perspective movement is disabled.

    Because it is using all the time (while I'm on the Home screen) the gyroscope, there really is not a battery consumption?

    To be clear, yes, technically it uses some more power, but it is not significant. The effect on your battery life will not be noticible.

    Unless your device is in power saving mode the gyroscope is kind of active always. It’s a piece of hardware that works for a lot of other things starting from camera to maps to level indicator etc.

    So yeah doesn’t make much of a difference.
