iOS 7 uses a parallax effect to create the perception of depth on your Home screen and elsewhere. When this feature is on, you may notice that your:

  • Wallpaper, icons, and alerts shift slightly as you move your phone.
  • When setting a wallpaper in Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness, the photo or image will be slightly zoomed and cannot be scaled to fit to the screen.

You can change this behavior by enabling Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.
