How To Disable Perspective Zoom Ios 16

iPhone Apps

Hello there! I am excited to share a neat technique I recently found on iOS 16. For those who, like me, prefer a stationary wallpaper on their iPhone, you may have noticed that iOS 16 has a new function called “Perspective Zoom.” This feature automatically changes the wallpaper’s angle as you tilt your device, creating a 3D illusion.

While some people love this feature, I personally find it a bit distracting and prefer a simpler and more static wallpaper. So, I went on a quest to find a way to disable Perspective Zoom on iOS 16, and guess what? I found a solution!

Step 1: Access the Wallpaper Settings

The first thing you need to do is open the Settings app on your iPhone running iOS 16. Scroll down and tap on “Wallpaper.”

Step 2: Choose a New Wallpaper

In the Wallpaper settings, you’ll see different categories such as “Dynamic,” “Stills,” and “Live.” Select the category that corresponds to the type of wallpaper you currently have set.

Note: If you’re not sure which category your wallpaper falls under, try selecting the “Stills” category first.

Step 3: Disable Perspective Zoom

Once you’ve chosen the category, browse through the available wallpapers and select a new one. This new wallpaper should not have the Perspective Zoom effect applied to it.

After selecting the new wallpaper, tap on the “Set” button at the bottom of the screen. You’ll be prompted to choose whether you want to set the wallpaper for your Home Screen, Lock Screen, or both. Make your selection and tap on “Set” again.

Step 4: Enjoy the Static Wallpaper

And that’s it! By selecting a new wallpaper without the Perspective Zoom effect, you’ve successfully disabled it on your iOS 16 device. Now, when you tilt your iPhone, the wallpaper will remain static and won’t adjust its perspective.

I hope this little tip helps you achieve the look you desire for your iPhone’s wallpaper. It’s all about personal preference, and I’m glad iOS 16 gives us the flexibility to customize our experience.


Disabling Perspective Zoom on iOS 16 is a simple process that allows you to have a more static wallpaper on your iPhone. By following these steps, you can easily customize your device to match your personal style and preferences. Enjoy your new static wallpaper!
