How to Set an Album as Wallpaper on iPhone

iOS 17.1 brings a new feature that allows you to set an album as your lock screen wallpaper on your iPhone. This means that your wallpaper will shuffle through all the images saved in that album, so you never have to see the same image every day. If you’re tired of the static wallpaper on your iPhone and want to add some variety to your lock screen, here’s how you can set an album as wallpaper.

Check Your iOS Version

Before you can set an album as wallpaper, make sure your iPhone is running iOS 17.1 or above. To check your iOS version, go to Settings > General > About. Here, you can view the iOS version of your iPhone. If your iOS version is below 17.1, you’ll need to update it. Go to Settings > General > Software Update > Update Now.
