iPhone X comes with exclusive Live wallpapers

With the release of iOS 11.2 beta 2, iPhone X users can enjoy “Live Wallpapers” on their new device.

Live wallpaper is an animated wallpaper that activates only when you perform the 3D Touch gesture on your lock screen.

Unsurprisingly, Apple is trying its best to keep iPhone X as exclusive as possible. This means all users who are on older iPhone devices such as iPhone 7 and even iPhone 8 will not be able to enjoy these features.

While this is a good thing for Apple, users who own older devices are certainly not happy with this move.

But since we are jailbreakers, we have got to find a loophole and exploit that to our benefit. Here’s a quick tutorial on how you can get these exclusive live wallpapers onto your iPhone for free.

Remember, you must have a computer or laptop available for immediate use for this tutorial. If you try this procedure with your iPhone, the quality of the live wallpaper won’t be as crisp.


  • Any iPhone (with or without jailbreak)
  • A computer running macOS or Windows
  • IntoLive app
  • Simple Transfer app
  • Internet connection
