iOS 7 Users Complain Nausea and Headache

Although a lot of people were excited about iOS 7’s improvements especially on animation and effects, some users complain about those features. A user wrote on one of Apple’s support forums that the zoom animations of the new iOS 7 makes her nauseous and giving her headache every time she uses her phone. Some also complain of carsickness caused by looking at the zoom animations of the said platform. An unhappy user also said that he just closes away his eyes every time he closes or opens an app to prevent seeing the zoom effects brought by iOS 7.


Doctor Supports the Complaints; Confirms Case

A doctor from UH Medical Center located in Ohio confirmed that the iOS 7 can be a possible suspect in causing carsickness to its users. Dr. George Kikano, a division chief of the said hospital stated that some people are really susceptible to this condition. The zoom animations or technically categorized as ‘parallax’ features of the iOS 7 can trigger the said sickness. Zoom animations cause the interface background to move back and forth just like the experience of watching a movie at an iMax theater and some people are just weak at responding to them.
