Why my icons move instead of wallpaper?
The should both move.
They don't, it creates the illusion that the icons are hovering above the background so it might give the impression that they are moving.
The icons move too? I didn't know that lol
Yes they move, watch icons closely, they're getting closer to status bar when you move your phone.
Yep. For example, tilt your phone back and see that the gap between the top row and the status bar is much smaller.
And now after wriggling my phone around lot, only my icons are moving and not my wallpaper - like OP describes. I guess it glitches out every so often... Maybe a Reduce Motion toggle on/off or phone reset fixes it?
edit: back now without doing anything.
And the whole thing is why you don't have a marketing department have an input on design cues. Cool for about 5 seconds, pretty much sums up most marketing sale points.
The parallax effect is kind of disappointing in my opinion. The iOS 7 Keynote made it look cooler than it actually is. Whatever...../parallax off.
Can you disable parallax?
Seems just one more thing to use battery... like the silly shining volume sliders in iOS 6.
Yes, you can turn it off. Since it uses the accelerometer that doesn't drain battery
The parallax effect is there, it's subtle, to varying degrees, depends greatly on background photo.
It helps to use a pic that has foreground and background objects, try this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=17806573&postcount=11
Certainly needs more depth added.
Thankfully you can by turning on Reduce Motion in Accessibility settings.
You got an iphone 5? You lucky dog, a few weeks ago you were complaining about the performance on iphone 4.
I bought 4S on CL few days ago. I don't like iPhone5.
The parallax effect is great if you jerk your phone around like a psycho every time you are using it.
The parallax effect is supposed to be gentle. Not something that jumps out at you with a flash and a bang, but something that presents a subtle, almost subconscious feeling of depth.
It looks great on video.
I found the shadows in iOS 6 to be more helpful when selecting a wallpaper of your choice it made most work, especially the thin black outline on the text under icons.
Shadows were easier on the eyes and gave a better illusion of depth.
Don't get me wrong, I like iOS 7 but Parallax is annoying after a while and does nothing for me to help with usability like shadows actually did.
