    Default What sorcery is this??
    I just upgraded to 7.1.2 and I've noticed that when I tilt my phone forward or backward that the icons will shift ever so slightly up or down respectively.

    MY background has outlines to "surround" each icon so it's really noticeable that the icons are in fact shifting..... they even do it sideways.


    Is this an Apple "feature" or does this happen with jailbreaking?

    Lol. Not sure if serious.

    It's the parallax effect, been there since ios7 first came out, nothing to do with jail breaking.

    Ahhh that's what parallax is..... I just upgraded from iOS 6.0.1 to 7.1.2 ..... it was a shock to me lol.

    now I know what it is I can turn it off..... why is this even a feature? is it at all necessary for anything other than some subtle effect.

    It's a matter of choice and taste
