  • Apples52 Level 1 Level 1

    I never imagined that the zooming out problem would actually get worse with the upgrade to IOS 7.1  but it has !

    iPhones however seem to be managing better with this ongoing problem than iPads.

    The wallpaper resize issue has certainly not been fixed for iPads

    The Reduce Motion on and the Screenshot fix does not work for iPads

    None of my previous wallpaper fixes work now at all because the zooming out is now so much worse  with IOS 7.1 than it was before my upgrade.

    I can't use any of my previous edited wallpapers because they now look so awfully enlarged.

    I have been fiddlling around with Photoshop this morning and have come up with a canvas ratio that is now acceptable to me. 

    My basic screen resolution for my iPad Mini  is 1024  x 768 px   Check your model for your screen size as it will be different to my iPad Mini

    I have increased my canvas size by 600 px on each side of a picture ie 1624  x 1368 px

    The resulting image doesn't look too bad now on my iPad Mini

    Clearly this problem is either quite beyond Apples capabilities to fix or they simply doen't give a toss about their customers

    Here's the quick fix:


    1) Go to the picture that you would like to set as your background.


    2) Pinch screen and take a screen shot (home button and sleep button). This step can be a little cumbersome, as it requires four fingers, but it is doable.


    3) Now that we've artificially inflated the size of the boarder we can scale the immage to the desired size.


    4) Set the new image as a wall paper, move and scale it to the desired parameters (this may take a couple of tries), and you're good to go.


    Hack on,

    Hi. I'm back, and more polite than ever...


    Have been keeping an eye on this issue, so it was with some dread that I saw iOS 7.1 drop into my Settings menu. Unsure as to whether to commit to it, I sought the advice of the dev of one of the earlier fixes. He feels that if you're an iPhone user then you're good to go, and if an iPad portrait user then it's not too bad. If, however, you use your iPad exclusively in landscape- as I and others (if you're out there Violetskye, hi!) do- then you are, as the saying goes, affixed by an inclined helical plane.


    So iOS 7.1 sits in my Settings, like a malevolent spider, and there it will stay. And I would advise any other iPad landscape users out there to do the same. Oh, and keep up the pressure on Apple to do something about it, or we'll all be waiting until iOS 8 for a proper fix.

    Tried and it doesn't work. These guys are getting to be like dealing with Microsoft it's too bad Apple was once great

  • HBMuscleButt Level 1 Level 1

    611k views, 813 comments, 55 pages of comments, the release of an update which does not contain a fix or the false option of "move and size".  It's clear that Apple is not listening or getting it.

  • RJV Bertin Level 3 Level 3

    One could hardly call that conclusion speculation anymore, indeed.


    Maybe they'll address the issue in the next major update - by allowing a selection from a series of approved, baked-in wallpapers from Ivy-league designers only. Look at it, why be able to change a wallpaper if you can't pick your app icons? O:-)

  • YesheDL Level 1 Level 1

    Since iPad 4 is my first tablet...I'm not as knowledgable as some, but have tried various ways to deal w this.  Apple simply needs to fix it!  Makes me crazy, for the freakin price this should work properly.  Here I go again to try suggestions I've seen here, wish me luck!

  • HBMuscleButt Level 1 Level 1

    I suggest Wallax.  I've tried various ways to get to where I want to be.  I left Wallfax for a while and it is now improved.  I like and suggest now.

  • StGermaine221 Level 1 Level 1

    Definitely agree with Wallax. Someone else on one of the numerous other threads on this topic suggested Wallax, and it did work for me.

  • YesheDL Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks for suggestion. I'm going to try that.

  • StephTizio Level 1 Level 1

    Is anyone still laboring under the illusion that Apple are the "good guys"?


    I mean why should Apple fix an issue that generates third-party apps they can profit from?


    The decision makers get stooges to read these support forums  and then they decide how to address issues ...

  • pakogama Level 1 Level 1

    Nope, I just downloaded iOS 7.1 and the pictures are now more zoomed in. This is worse, and any of the suggestions works for me, ANY.

  • Ram Ratan Level 1 Level 1

    now, for incoming call contact picture is not full screen, had any one noticed or any solution.

  • pedropedro Level 1 Level 1

    from the recent 7.1 update - To disable this behavior, you can turn off Perspective Zoom by navigating to Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness, and choosing a new Wallpaper

    When the wallpaper is previewed, you’ll see a new Perspective Zoom button. Tap on the button to disable it (it should say Perspective Zoom: Off), and set the wallpaper. iOS will no longer move your wallpaper when you tilt your device.

  • Softtail_JJ Level 1 Level 1

    I did exactly as you said on my iPhone 5, I could not find any perspective zoom button anywhere.
