iOS Tip 74: Reduce Motion

Reduce screen motion on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

One of the coolest features of iOS is the use of a semi 3D-effect across almost the entire interface, including backgrounds, folders, icons, alerts and such. However, while nice to watch, this feature is really not that necessary and it can also consume quite a bit of battery life. Thankfully you can disable it completely: go to Setting>General>Accessiblity>Reduce Motion.
