With the introduction of iOS 7, Apple brought a host of new features to the operating system complete with a new look and animation effects, such as the parallax effect which gave off the illusion that the icons were floating, along with the different zooming animations when opening folders or launching apps. It certainly looks pretty but apparently it’s been causing some iOS users motion sickness in the process. There is a forum thread on Apple’s website where there are a handful of users complaining about the effects and how it gives them motion sickness, with one describing the effect as, “It’s exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car.”
There is an option in the Settings that allows users to turn off the parallax effect but as for the zooming effects, there’s not much that can be done. Some are reporting nausea so severe that they had to take a sick day and go home from work due to it. The only way to “cure” this ailment is to downgrade to iOS 6 which definitely does not seem like a permanent solution. We’re not sure if this is an exaggerated situation but any of our readers experience motion sickness while using iOS 7?
