Motion sickness, vertigo caused by iOS 7
The iOS 7 update just came out for Apple's mobile devices. While most users were happy with the update, it made others nauseous – literally. Apple iPhone and iPad users have jumped on the online forums to talk about how iOS 7 motion and zoom animations have made them suffer from motion sickness and have even triggered bouts of vertigo, according to CNET.
The complaints center around the parallax and zoom features that were updated on the devices. For example, when selecting an application the screen zooms in. These rapid animations are too quick for some users.
"The zoom animations everywhere on the new iOS 7 are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache," one forum poster wrote, CNET quoted. "It's exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car."
There might not be an end in sight for those users. The Verge reported that users can downgrade their phones back to the iOS 6 to get rid of that motion, but there are other ways users can try to get rid of it on the iOS 7.
One way that the parallax can be mitigated is by going into the settings and clicking "Reduce Motion." However, that doesn't fully reduce the parallax motion, and it does nothing to prevent the zooming in and out of applications that seem to be causing people headaches, no pun intended.
"I had severe vertigo the minute I started using my ipad [sic] with ios 7," said another forum poster. "Lost the rest of the day to it… And not happy at all. It's the transition between the apps flying in and out."
