Compelling evidence for Lorentz invariance violation (LIV) would demand a complete revision of modern physics. Therefore, searching for a signal or extending the validity of the invariance is fundamental for building our understanding of the extreme phenomena in the Universe. In this paper, we review the potential of ultra-high-energy astroparticles in setting limits on LIV. The standard framework of LIV studies in astroparticle physics is reviewed and its use on the electromagnetic and hadronic sectors are discussed. In particular, the current status of LIV tests using experimental data on ultra-high-energy photons and cosmic rays is addressed. A detailed discussion with improved argumentation about the LIV kinematics of the relevant interactions is shown. The main previous results are presented together with new calculations based on recently published astrophysical models.
