    I just upgraded my iPhone 5 to the new iOS 7 (hate it so far btw, but that's my problem). One thing I absolutlely hate - gives me a headache in fact, is this "feature" where the camera tracks your eyes and causes the stuff on teh screen to shift around based on where it thinks you're looking.

    Please tell me there is a way to turn this "feature" OFF?

    Not sure what you're talking about....explain further. This is in the default camera app?

    it's not eye tracking, it's sensor based. just move the iphone, it'll move around.

    go to settings -> accessibility -> reduce motion

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion (toggle it on)

    Btw, it doesn't track the movement of your eyes, it tracks how you're holding the phone via the accelerometer...

    I assume you mean the parallax effect on the home screen wallpapers. If so then :-

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion and set it to On.

    Your name is perfect for this post OP. haha

    Its not tracking your eye. The background is moving when you tilt the screen. You can turn this off in the settings.

    Haha, "eye-tracking"...

    This is the Parallax effect you are talking about that shifts the wallpaper depending on the movement of the phone.

    To turn off:
    Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion
    Turn this setting to On.

    It's not eye tracking. The graphics changed based on the angle you're holding the phone. You're just holding it wrong! :D

    iOS doesn't have a "eye tracking" feature. You are referring to the Parallax effect.

    Go to settings > general > accessibility and Reduce Motion= ON.

    You're obviously not a fan of British comedy.

    He's obviously not. One of the best comedy shows ever IMHO.

    Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure what the "official name" was.
