How to turn off parallax 3D backgrounds in iOS 7
The parallax backgrounds included in iOS 7 are one its most impressive new graphical features. It’s not an effect that everyone will appreciate, however. It can be distracting or even make some feel dizzy.
Thankfully it’s easy to disable the parallax effect. Watch the video below, or read on to see how it’s done…
1. Settings app
Open the Settings app, tap the General button then choose Accessibility.
2. Reduce Motion
Scroll down the window and tap on Reduce Motion, then toggle the switch to On. The parallax effect is now turned off.
3. Parallax Off
Press the Home button and you’ll notice the background no longer responds to your movement. Please note that you can re-enable the Parallax effect by turning the Reduce Motion toggle back to Off.
