Now that iOS 7 is in the wild I'm getting some interesting questions, like one from a friend who discovered the parallax motion effect that moves the background behind the Home screen icons triggers their migraines. How do you fix that, they asked. Simple: enable Reduce Motion.
Tilting your iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, or iPhone 5s creates a cool effect where the background subtly moves to create a sense of depth. The problem is that, for some people, the effect is hard on their eyes and can even trigger migraine headaches. Here's how to disable it:
- Tap Settings
- Tap General
- Tap Accessibility
- Enable Reduce Motion
Does the parallax effect in iOS 7 hurt your eyes? Enable Reduce Motion
With Reduce Motion enabled the parallax effect you see on the lock screen and Home screen go away. It may be a subtle change, but for some people it's a big deal.
