• iOS 7 update making people sick….literally


    PITTSBURGH - For some iPhone and iPad users the rollout of iOS 7, Apple systems updated software system, is making them sick -- literally.

    The new system reportedly has made owners experience motion sickness and even vertigo.

    Reports of the stomach-turning problem began surfacing on several official and unofficial Apple product forums earlier this week.

    While some people reported hatred for its primary colors and skinny fonts, some users are reporting that its zoom function and parallax animations are causing vertigo, nausea and headaches, according to the Apple user forums.

    "The zoom animations everywhere on the new iOS 7 are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache," iOS 7 user Ensorceled wrote on an Apple product forum. "It's exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car. How do I turn them off?”

    Some people suggested "Reduce Motion" in settings, but that only seems to affect the shifting parallax view effect, not the zooming feature, according to The Verge.

    So far, Apple hasn't released an official comment on the issue.

    The Huffington Post and NBC Bay Area contributed to this report.
