    Since their release of dynamic wallpapers I have hoped that Apple will add new ones every update, only to be disappointed.

    With the development of live photos on the 6s&6s+ I had hoped this finally meant they would be releasing some new ones included with the software for users not on those devices, but I'm skeptical this will ever happen.....

    Anyone else having similar feelings?

    yes & no, theyre nice & all & imagine if they opened up to user created dynamic themes etc.

    but they dont help battery, & theyre probably much larger than the included wallpapers which will chew into useable device storage, increase firmware download sizes etc..so rip 16gb & especially 8gb devices

    I'm curious as to whether anybody uses the ones that are currently included.

    the ones that came with iOS 7 are pretty boring and the new ones only work with the 6S so meh.

    Personally, I'd rather have a picture wallpaper that moves when you tilt the phone. Kind of like a Harry Potter photo.

    I love the idea of them...
    But at the moment....the ones that are included...well, they're rather boring to say the least.

    I understand that there must be a HUGE battery drain, but I LOVE the android ones(especially the original nexus one) that react to touch, for me they're one of the few features that would ever make me consider switching

    I've been using them on my iPod and iPad for awhile now. Have one on my iPhone now on iOS 9 GM. The bubbles move when you tilt the phone around. It's very Phase Beam-ish.

    The battery isn't an issue I don't think. I used to use them on Android without a problem.

    I would rather be able to share and apply Live Photos. Let us be able to rotate them like OS X wallpaper too.
