iPhone wallpaper getting cut off

| 10-Oct-2013 || Author: || ios7 |

If you’ve upgraded your device to iOS7 and notice that the pictures you’re trying to set as wallpaper are getting cut off something terrible, there’s an easy fix.

Go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion




Apples own website explains this in more detail:

iOS 7 uses a parallax effect to create the perception of depth on your Home screen and elsewhere. When this feature is on, you may notice that your:

  • Wallpaper, icons, and alerts shift slightly as you move your phone.
  • When setting a wallpaper in Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness, the photo or image will be slightly zoomed and cannot be scaled to fit to the screen.

You can change this behavior by enabling Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.

Note: If zoomed, you will need to rescale your wallpaper to fit to the screen.
