    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.

    Well, the 'window' has closed to downgrade to iOS 6.1.x, so for those who have upgraded then no longer possible - any other solutions? Info HERE

    I saw a thread on another forum where the OP had an iPhone 5 upgraded to iOS 7, and was suffering nausea, etc. IT took him several goes at getting Apple to assist. The first time round, the Genius had no idea how to assist - I believe the OP was wanting a downgrade to iOS 6.

    Fortunately, yesterday he visited Apple again, and they swapped out for an iPhone 5 with iOS 6 still running on it. He will wait on Apple to implement a fix before upgrading to iOS 7.

    Most or all of this stuff can be turned off, correct? If so, wouldn't that solve the issue?

    The Reduce Motion option under Accessibility only turns of the parallax effect of the wallpaper. The folder and app zooms cannot currently be turned off in any settings.

    I have suffered vertigo twice since upgrading my iPad and iPhone 5. Had to go to the Dr, when I was able, and he gave me a prescription. After all this time and $$$, I read this. Very disappointing! Might have to return to Android devices - wonder what that will cost?

    If you are sensitive to the parallex effect on your iPad, chances are that you will be sensitive to other situations where your eyes have trouble fixating on a moving object. So, buying an android device may "cure" your vertigo symptoms by removing that stimuli....however, there are many other external stimuli around you that may trigger your vestibular system once again. Good luck!
