Apple’s iOS 7 Users Report Severe Motion Sickness

By Vignesh Subramanyan | Small Business

Using new technology can often be a headache, and in the case of iOS 7 users it could mean literally getting a headache. Apple’s iPhone and iPad users have been complaining about iOS 7’s parallax and zoom features.

Users posted on Apple’s forums claiming that many of them have experienced motion sickness, nausea and even headaches due to the motion on-screen.

Some users who posted to the forum even claimed to have called Apple, but were informed that some of the features couldn’t be turned off. Although a few users claimed to have reverted back to iOS 6, an article by the International Business Times states that users will no longer be able to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6. The article mentions that due to high adoption rates Apple has stopped signing the older firmware, which prevents users from installing iOS 6.

The primary concern users have with the new operating system has to do with the parallax feature and zoom functions. The parallax feature allows users to feel as though they’re head on with the display as it’s being tilted in different directions. Although this feature can be slightly modified by choosing the “reduce motion” option in the Accessibility menu, users cannot disable the zoom functions .

For now it seems that iOS 7 users can only email Apple with their complaints, as the company has yet to comment about this issue.
