How to reduce motion in iOS 9 for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

The drawback with Parallax in terms of accessibility is that the animations can be very distracting for some users.  â€˜Reduce Motion’ allows users to disable Parallax on the home screen.  However, this does not turn off other animations on the device which some users may still find distracting.

  • To activate the â€˜Accessibility’ features on your device select â€˜Settings’ â€˜General’ + â€˜Accessibility’.
  • Tap to select the â€˜Reduce Motion’.
