Download all of the still and live iOS 9 wallpapers here

Apple's iOS 9 is hitting us next week - on September 16, Apple will seed the official version of the OS for the wide public. Many of the new features of the upcoming mobile OS release got demoed on stage (we've already covered them in a nifty round-up), and now everybody who has a developer account with Apple can experience the beta preview on their supported device (anything newer that iPhone 4s is eligible).

As usual, the new iOS will come with a great host of new wallpapers for you to choose among. Traditionally, these have been still ones, but this time around, we will be able to relish in the nifty new live wallpapers that Apple showed a couple of days ago when it announced the iPhone 6s/6s Plus, among other things. They will make use of the 3D Touch tech that is on the new iPhones.

Guess what, we have them all, both the still and live wallpapers. Here are the ones available so far. We've only included low-res GIF versions of the live wallpapers that Apple showed on stage, but you can easily download any by hitting the corresponding button in our gallery below.

Right below, you will find all iOS 9 wallpapers, scaled down. If you like any of them, you can download the full-resolution version from the link below.

Get the full-res versions here

It is not because someone doesn't have an iphone that this person is poor. Some are smart enough not to spend a crazy amount of money in a phone which isn't useful for them. You can't blame them for this reason. You know, some people buy android smartphones that are even more expensive than iphones... But don't be frustrated to get this feature almost ten years after the first iphone launch. FYI, live wallpapers have been supported since the the launch of the first phone with color display...Once again, fanboys are bragging about an astronomical feature delay...

We've had live wallpapers for years. Also, the ones we have are written in Java which dont have as much wear on the battery as an MP4 file would be playing over and over again. I also remember when on the iPhone you couldnt change the wallpaper. are you old enough to remember that? Also, why would I need to imagine I have an iPhone? My Edge Plus is way batter than any iPhone that has been released and will be released within the next 2 years.

Google should follow the Apple style on making stock wallpaper. almost all stock wallpaper of android are very dull

Really? because the ones on the Galaxy devices are awesome, very brite and brilliant with color. The colors look like they leap off the screen. Also out live wallpapers arent movie files which are battery draining. We have the best on this side of the wall, Apple's poor copies are just that...POOR COPIES.

... He said Google. Nobody said anything about Samsung. I do agree, because the stock Android wallpapers that Google itself makes are indeed pretty boring. - Owner of an S6 Edge Plus and iPhone 6 (soon to be 6s)

Samsung's wallpapers are good too. I'm pointing that the Google is the one who makes boring wallpapers

"google ...stock wallpaper" WELL let me stop you right there. there are nearly ZERO manufacturers who offer a stock android experience. which is something many iphone users don't understand. the nexus line is the ONLY android phone that can be officially compared to the iphone. every other oem provides their own experience for each version of android or each version of their hardware. Samsung's stock wallpapers are very different from HTC, from Sony, from LG... that's the freedom of android.

I believe the live wallpapers only move when you 3D touch them? If true, that's a bit strange because are you really going to force touch the lock screen before you unlock it just to see it move? It should continuously move all the time like true live wallpapers.

How can I set them as live wallpapers?

From what I've been reading it's believed these live wallpapers are exclusive to the 6s/6s Plus because they need 3D Touch to make them move and they aren't in any of the iOS 9 GM releases so far. You can still make photos move on previous iPhones, but there is a play button to do that. This live wallpapers decision really baffles me because no one is going to force touch their lock screen to see it move, and then unlock there phone afterwards. They just go straight to unlock their phone. Now showing a live 'picture' on the phone moving after unlocking the phone is a different story and I can understand that part, but for the wallpaper it should be true live wallpaper and continuously move all the time without user interaction.
