iOS 7 Parallax and Zooming Effects cause Motion Sickness

Apple rolls out Parallax and zooming animations with iOS7 and while they are cool features; people are claiming that they have experienced bouts of motion sickness, reports The VergeThe specific thread, which spans over eight pages, has users discussing symptoms that correlate to vertigo, intense nausea, and dizziness and which are occurring with prolonged use of iOS 7 involving actions such as returning to the home screen from an app and using the multitasking menu.

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.
