    I just bought a 32 gig lte ipad air and when I press the home button or move the ipad from vertical to horizontal the background moves. Is this supposed to be happening?

    It is supposed to move when you tilt the iPad.

    Yes, the icons should appear to be hovering over the background.

    I am using the sky with stars background and the icons are not moving, the whole background pic appears to be. I guess I will try and film it

    Don't bother posting a video. It's supposed to do that.

    A simple web search would have answered your question. Settings > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > On

    If you want the app open and close animations you could also try turning off perspective zoom when setting your wallpaper.

    What is the purpose of the moving background? Is that supposed to look good?

    It's a faux 3D type effect to make the icons look like they are floating above the wallpaper. Does it Look good is a subjective question. I like it OK.

    It is supposed to make the OS feel like it is "layered".
