No Panoramic Wallpapers

I was really looking forward to this. Do you think they may bring it back in a future update?

I can't get the panoramic effect either. It puts my panoramic photos in a separate "panorama photos" folder but when I set them to lock or home screen they dont do any type of panoramic effect.

Anyone know how to fix this ?

I don't have panoramic function either. I tried a previous pan photo. Nothing. So I created a new pan photo. Nothing. The screen tells me to Move and Scale. You YouTube videos I watched indicated it should read Wallpaper Preview.

And the pinch & zoom feature is not working either. Can't scale.

Any settings I'm not using?

BUMMER!

Turn on Reduce Motion in Settings > General > Accessibility. The Parallax feature disables the scaling.

You are running a beta? Panoramic wallpaper was dropped from the final release. You still get slight parallax movement but not the full scrolling effect. Quite disappointing, hopefully it will be back in the next update.

Yes, they're too different things. Parallax works with any pic, not just panoramas. The panorama effect was meant to scroll right from one end of the image to the other.

You know what, I am going to take a bet - this will be a 5s only feature, available out of the box. It appears to use the gyroscope versus the accelerometer for the normal parallax.

And the 5s has the M7, so might as well give it an exclusive feature to take advantage of it...

Thanks for the tip about reducing motion. Seems counterproductive, though, if you need that set to "off" in order to enjoy panoramic wallpaper. And I say, enjoy, because iOS7 is a winner in my book.

With regard to panaromic wallpaper being a 5s feature, it has not been written as that and, as well, all those YouTube videos demonstrating panoramic wallpapers can't be using a 5s.

It seems panoramic wallpaper was in beta up to the latter releases. I suppose it will make its way back? Hmmm...

I'm not sure what everyone else has but I have an iPhone 5 as well. I tried an existing pan photo... nothing. I tried a new pan photo... nothing. All were stored in the "My Panoramas" folder (or whatever).

This is certainly a first world problem but I sure would like to get it to work.

That my be the case cause I read that Apple pulled panoramic wallpapers in one of the beta's and it hasnt come back. I also bet a 5s will have better battery life with parallax because the M7 will do the work unlike a 4s, 5 or 5c which off loads it to the CPU.

I had a panoramic wallpaper set up since beta 2. Since then i've removed the beta, got back on at beta 4, and updated ever since then (updated to public release via DFU mode) and I still get the panoramic lock screen (full scrolling). Am i just lucky? I'm trying to do it on other people's phones and it won't work.
