How to Turn-off the Wallpaper Parallax Effect in iOS 7

One of the most popularized eye-candy features in iOS 7 is the wallpaper parallax. Nevermind that the feature has been already exploited on Android and even available via the jailbreak tweak DeepEnd, Apple just makes it seem like it’s totally new.

It’s a cool feature, yes. For iOS users, this is something new and will probably be a charming eye-candy to have on the iPhone. But if you’re concerned about the resources it might eat up or if you just want to plainly turn it off, iOS 7 lets you do that.

The parallax effect for the wallpaper on iOS 7 can be turned on/off through Settings. But it’s not available through the usual route (of Brightness & Wallpaper).

So how do we disable wallpaper Parallax effect in iOS 7? Here’s how:

Step #1. Go to Settings.

Step #2. Tap on General.

Step #3. Now tap on Accessibility.

Step #4. Scrolling down, you’ll find Reduce Motion.

Step #5. Tap on this to toggle it to ON.

When you turn this on, the parallax effect merely dims down so you won’t find the effect as pronounced as before. This is almost akin to disabling the feature.

You can toggle the feature to OFF to regain the parallax effect.

You can get this parallax effect even in iOS 6.x through jailbreak tweaks (DeepEnd). Although a nice little feature, it’s hard to ascertain how much of an impact this feature (and other small tweaks of this sort) will have on the battery, especially on older devices.

iOS 7 is set to be released to the public in September if early estimates hold good. A recent poll asserts that over 72% of the users are ready to jump to iOS 7.
