iOS 7 got you queasy? Users complain about motion sickness
Apple’s iOS 7 has arrived (and even 7.0.1 for owners of new hardware), and despite concern that the changes present might scare away some users, adoption had been proceeding at its fastest rate to date. However, while that means that plenty of users are installing iOS 7, and ultimately learning to live with the new look, some are struggling more than others, and quite a few have been experiencing the symptoms of motion sickness after exposure to all the zooming, animations, and transitions present in the new UI.
There’s a decent-sized thread going on in the Apple Support Communities about the issue, with concerned users trading advice on a fix. One starting point is to enable the Reduce Motion option in the device’s accessibility settings, but we’ve seen many users complaining that even that step is insufficient.
Other suggestions include dialing-down brightness, using bold fonts, and trying to avoid placing commonly-accessed apps in folders.
