Apple's New IOS Making Some Users Ill

Apple's latest operating system is making people sick, literally. It seems the zooming animations are a bit much for some users to take, and they're reporting motion sickness.

It seems the zooming animations are a bit much for some users to take, and they're reporting motion sickness.

If you own an iPhone or iPad,  Apple's newest software may be enough to turn your stomach.

The new operating system animates the apps-- so they fly in and out of the screen.
Customers say all the movements and zooms in IOS 7 are leaving them reeling... from motion sickness.

People are flocking to Twitter and Apple's forum online, complaining about motion sickness.
Some are even reporting vertigo-like symptoms.

One person on the forum writes:
"The zoom animations everywhere on the new IOS 7 are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache. It's exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car.
Another says "I have the same problem. After using it for 2 minutes, I felt nauseous."

The user then goes on to say "I hope Apple creates a way to disable this in a future update." 
That's right-- it will have to be a future update. Right now there is now way to turn the zoom animation off.

Now it has been present in previous versions of IOS, it's not brand new. It's just much more intense in this latest version.

We'll see if Apple makes any changes-- but for now, some people are so frustrated with this, they are actually downgrading their operating system back to the previous version.
