    Hi! I'm just curious if anyone else is experiencing this. At times while within an app or website, upon returning to the home screen, all apps or perhaps the background realigns or shifts downward? It's a very brief realignment and seems to happen while parallax is on (motion in accessibility settings).

    Yes I noticed this too. It is odd but now that it isn't only me, I'll not worry about it :)

    Yeah it's a software issue. Let's hope they fix it in an update soon.

    Thanks guys! It's reassuring to know that's it's not just me. That'll save me from pointless restores to fix :)

    I don't believe it is something that will be fixed. I believe it happens when the parallax feature recalibrates it's neutral position.

    I too have noticed it and wondered if it was related to the parallax view. It doesn't happen every time but when it does it's pretty noticeable.

    Ive been running iOS 7 on my iphone 5 since the first beta and never noticed this before... I'm sure this is something that can and will be fixed by apple.

    As have I and I can assure you it has been doing this on mine since at least b2. I didn't notice it on b1 but I can't say it didn't do it.

    It happened a lot on my iPhone 5 when I was running the beta versions of iOS7 but it hasn't happened on my 5S yet.

    seems to be a common problem. My 5s does it. there are a lot of threads about this issue here and on the apple support forums.

    Haven't noticed it at all on my 5 running the beta's and GM seed, but definitely noticed it a few times on my 5s

    I've noticed it on my 5 and I just chalked it up to the parallax function resetting itself. It doesn't bother me but I suspect it will be fixed on a subsequent release.

    I have my iPhone 5 and my brand new iPhone 5s here (both on 7.0.2). I have this problem on the 5s but not on the 5. I'm glad I'm not the only one getting this.

    I think it is a combination of parallax and the level sensor being off. it seems that most 5s gyros are off. to the guys who have a 5 can you check the level using the compass and see if this theory holds.

    My dead-on iPhone 5 did this, too. So the parallax funkiness is not a uniquely 5s issue.

    Are you using apple's wallpaper, or your own? I have only noticed it when i use a different wallpaper other than the stock wallpaper that comes with the iphone 5s. Wallpaper for parallax is a different size than the standard wallpaper. It actually not the icons moving, but the non parralax wallpaper trying to recenter itself.

    When I've tried it's been with the standard wallpaper that you get upon a fresh install of iOS.

    Mine does it with the stock wallpaper as well. I turned off the parallax and that fixed it. Hopefully this will be addressed soon along with other things with a software update.

    I've had 3 iPhone 5s's already and they have ALL done that. It looks like iOS 7 did get a little bit of Android ;) jkjk

    I am glad it wasn't just me having this problem. It's happening on my 5C with stock wallpaper.
