Turn Off the Parallax Effect

The Parallax Effect is a new visual effect in iOS7 that gives the illusion that the home screen is multilayered, which makes the applications and wall paper background appear to be on their own separate planes. If you tilt your device, you can see this sort of 3D effect more clearly. It's especially noticeable if you use the iPhone's gyroscope and accelerometer in gaming apps. While the feature may be cool, it causes a feeling of motion sickness for some users. It also uses up some of your battery life. To disable this effect, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > On. To watch a video on how to do this, view the YouTube video Disabling the Parallax Effect in iOS7 to Reduce Motion.
