Many users of iPhone also want to get rid of this issue this why I’ve prepared a step by step guide to stop Wallpaper Resize and Zoom in iOS 7.


How To Stop Wallpaper Resize and Zoom in iOS 7 [ Guide ]

Following are simple steps to stop wallpapers resize and zoom in iOS 7. You can try this on all device who support iOS 7 ( iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s and iPad ).


  1. First Open Settings
  2. Now tap on General.
  3. Select Accessibility
  4. Tap on Reduce Motion
  5. Now turn ON the Reduce Motion switch.

After turning reduce motion on, the automatic wallpaper resize and zoom on iOS 7 will be stoped. The main issue of this error was parallax effect. When ever you set a wallpaper it has to be set for parallax, it means wallpaper has to stretch for outside the iPad/iPhone home screen.

Following are the resolution dimensions for iPhone screens:

  • iPhone 5s/5c/5 – 640×1136 px (portrait)
  • iPad 4/3 – 1536×2048 px (portrait)
  • iPhone 4s – 640×960 px (portrait)
