How can I turn off 3D / parallax wallpaper on iOS 7?

By default, iOS 7 creates a parallax effect on the home and lock screens, giving the illusion of 3D when the device is moved. This can be interesting, or at times annoying and a waste of battery power. If you prefer to keep the background wallpapers flat behind icons, this is how to turn parallax off.

Navigate to the iOS 7 Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion -> ON.

3D motion behind alerts and icons is now disabled. Reduce Motion will also replace the app zoom effect with a quick fade in iOS 7.0.3 or later.


Does this only work on 4s and newer? Because I donĀ“t find it on my iPhone 4.

I have the iPhone 4 also and can't find it either

I can't find it either :-(

The iPhone 4 does not support live wallpapers or the parallax effect.

BUT I HAVE THE 4 AND ITS PARALLAX EFFECT. Ho
W DO I Take it off???

I cant find it either.

I couldn't find it on my iphone 4 but in my notifications where the time and battery life shows its in 3D and is so annoying i can't read it at all.. Any suggestions on how to fix this ?

Does 3D wallpaper drain the battery that much? How does it work?

I can't find "reduce motion" on my iphone 4s

Then update your phones software.

Or don't
