    I purchased a new iPad Air on Black Friday and several times since then the dynamic wallpaper (floating bubbles) has frozen, meaning the bubbles have stopped floating around the screen and they have turned oval in shape instead of round. To get it working again I have to go back into the wallpaper preferences and chose the wallpaper again. I have searched and can't find another thread on this. Anyone else having this problem? I'm assuming it's another iOS7 memory issue.

    I've got exactly the same problem. Good to know I'm not the only one. Do you already have a solution? After this happens,I change the wallpaper and it works for the moment but it happens again some time later... Hope Apple will release a patch

    Glad I'm not the only one too!

    Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one! No solution yet. Keeps happening every couple of weeks. Doesn't seem to be that common a complaint though.

    Maybe its the size of the Wallpaper that is making it freeze up. Just a thought and a start. Try a different dynamic wallpaper and see if it changes anything on your device.

    I think your thinking of parallax. Dynamic wallpapers are the built in Apple ones with the floating bubbles of different colours. They are the only ones available.

    Happens on every i0s & device as far as I'm aware. Sometimes the bubbles freeze and then move around abnormally. Hopefully it will be fixed with I0s 7.1

    Not every. Both my iPad 2 and my iPod Touch 5 are running iOS 7.0.4 and the dynamic wallpaper movement is flawless.

    Are you sure? The dynamic wallpaper bubbles always mess up, they freeze and then instantly snap to a different place depending on how your tithing the device.

    Im sure it'll all be fixed with 7.1

    Well, seeing that I use both devices throughout the day, yes, I'm absolutely sure I've had no such freezes.

    I did try tilting my iPad in an attempt to find your alleged mess-up. The bubbles slightly change shape during the rotation of the turn, but don't freeze. The circles just continue their float pattern. Quite pleasing to watch.
