Several iOS7 Users Experiencing Motion Sickness from Parallax Scrolling & Zooming
There are reports that some users are a bit queasy over the new iOS7, and we mean that quite literally. Supposedly, there are multiple reports of users experiencing various forms of motion sickness, from vertigo and dizziness to outright nausea, when using some of the new Parallax Scrolling and Zooming functions found within iOS7. Apple actually included a “Reduce Motion” option inside the iOS 7’s Accessibility menu; however, that only disables the Parallax effect on the home screen, leaving some iPad owners reaching for their Dramamine. Here's a quote regarding the topic,
Right now the word from Apple is that there is no fix for the issue present in the OS. Many users who are experiencing this issue have resorted to downgrading back to iOS6. Hopefully, Apple will address this soon. Sound off if you are one of the few who have experienced this stomach-churning problem.
Instead, most are pointing to the zooming effects that are now ubiquitous across iOS when opening and closing apps or entering the multitasking menu. "I had severe vertigo the minute I started using my iPad with iOS 7," writes Apple forum user glassrabit. "Lost the rest of the day to it." Another user, nybe, writes, "I had to go home 'sick' from work because of the intense nausea due to using my iPhone with iOS 7."
