I just wanted to add to the forums and to the Apple atmosphere - that ios7 has a glaring flaw. The zooming from different points in the screen when opening and closing apps is causing nausea and motion sickness for me and my wife, and I'm sure for many others.


This is a big usability problem which needs to be addressed!

The previous ios zoomed, but it would fade and zoom in and out from the same point every time. Now it zooms depending on where the icon was located.


PLEASE Apple support and community, help fix this issue in iOS 7.


PS - The lime green colors are way too bright as well. What happened to the taste for design?

iPhone 5, iOS 7

    Yes, it's really annoying and causes me eye strain as well.


    Please let Apple know by calling 1-800-MY-IPHONE (1-800-694-7466) or submitting feedback at

    They went too far in the way it zoom in and out this time. I don't know if this is an error but it makes me so dizzy too. At the beginning I didn't believe it but after a few days I don't even want to use it. Do you think apple is going to fix stuff like this? Also the color white is too bright and no choices to change it.

    Leave feedback from the website.

    Feedback from advisor's doesn't mean jack

    I am glad it is not only me having this problem!!!!

    Since the upgrade I can hardly use my ipad as all these zooming and animation give me severe nausea. I am contemplating the idea of getting rid of it is now I have lost any interest in using it........


    I have left feedback in the website but I doubt they will do anything about this.

  • DaveGeng Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem here, I love iOS 7 design in general and the parallax is tolerable and can be turned off, but the zooming effect when you open/exit apps is horrendous. so sick of it, please give us an option to turn it off or at least tune it down.

  • djs758 Level 1 Level 1

    Me too. I'd be fine with the kidsy color scheme if the contrast wasn't so harsh in apps like iMessage.


    The zooms are especially terrible, and I can't believe Apple thought these would be a good idea. They give me a headache--nuts that a phone update should do make it through testing and do that to so many people!


    Apple needs to allow for a dark color scheme and ditch the absurd animations or I'm for sure gone as a customer (plus three family members with iPhones and iPads).


    PLEASE FIX, APPLE!!! Are you there??????

  • ActIII Level 1 Level 1

    A simple toggle to turn off the animations would be great. Back in 1995 , windows 95 had that setting,  why it wasnt included in a 2013 operating system is beyond belief.

    No, Apple isn't here.  If you'd read the ToS of this forum, you'd know that.

    The moving text bubbles really play tricks with your eyes when scrolling the page up and down. They all move individually!

    I've experienced nausea and motion sickness and headaches since last week when I installed IOS 7, all due to the apps zooming in and out animation. 


    I had zero problems with IOS 6.


    I think the best thing to do is keep posting on different forums to raise awareness.  I think there's some people who may feel a little of the nauseous and dizzy symptoms, but they're not sure what's causing it. 


    Also, everyone, please send a quick email to the Apple Accessibility Group.  I believe this is the best way to get in touch with the folks at Apple who can best address this issue.  It is as simple as an enable/disable animation option with the Accessiblity menu.



    My ONLY solution this past week, is to look away or close my eyes when unlocking and opening/closing apps.


    Please send an email and keep your fingers crossed for a quick fix! 

  • rollo47 Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, I get this issue too, glad to see other people raising it. I think it's the smoothness of the animation which tends to draw your eye along and induce a very mild feeling of nausea, it's similar to the feeling I get in the car when reading.


    The fact that it delays the app opening/closing (when you just want it to open/close) only adds to the frustration.

    Or you could go into settings and turn on reduce motion. But complaining is easier I guess.

  • ActIII Level 1 Level 1

    reduce motion setting does nothing for the zooming animation when closing or opening an app,  there is no setting to disable that,  so yes complaining is easier
