HOW TO REDUCE SCREEN MOTION ON YOUR APPLE IPHONE

Iphone

In 2013, Apple released iOS 7, a total rehaul of the iOS system. With the software, Apple included new animations, like the parallax effect — this movement gives the illusion that the home screen is multilayered, with the applications and background wallpaper each on their own separate planes. Tilting the device around brings the feature to life, using the iPhone’s gyroscope and accelerometer to change the orientation of certain planes.

The parallax wallpapers and motion effects can make your experience more dynamic and fun, but they can also be distracting, annoying, or, even worse, make you queasy. But you can turn off the parallax effect and stop the queasiness luckily.

IPHONE SCREEN MOTION EFFECTS

Apple introduced both dynamic and parallax wallpapers starting from iPhone 7.1. The “zoom” effect when transitioning between screens being the most prevalent one gives a slightly different feel. The new operating system also ushered in some new features for users’ wallpaper, and the one that might cause some grief is the parallax effect.

For the iPhone, parallax wallpapers sit on a different “layer” than the app icons on the Home screen and move when you tilt your phone. And while you’re moving, this zooming and shifting sometimes can make you feel sick. Here are a few ways to stop these effects.
