    Good evening guys. Please help me as I'm going to go bonkers.

    Now unless I'm very much mistaken , when you take a ' Live ' photo , & then use it as your homescreen , shouldn't this then ' move ' when you press your screen.

    Now when I take a pic with this switched on , it then moves as it should when viewed in my camera roll.

    The thing is , if I then select this same pic & use it as my homescreen , it will not ' come alive ' as they should. Likewise , if I select one of the new stock live wallpapers on my homescreen , when I press on them they don't move.

    Am I missing something here , should I have something switched on for this to work ?

    I have a lovely live pic of my daughter laughing , & although it moves as should when viewed via camera roll , it doesn't do anything other than act as a normal pic when used as a wallpaper.

    It only works on the lock screen,
    which thanks to the new and improved Touch ID, you never really get to touch. :)

    Yes, they will only move on the lock screen. If you press the sleep/wake button and then firmly press the lock screen it will move.

    BINGO !!

    And there lies my problem. For some reason I thought it was home screen too. At least it's not a prob with my 6s Plus then.

    Cheers for replying so quickly guys.

    MacRumors forum problem solving at its best.
