    I think I'm going to call my boss tomorrow and tell him I can't go to work because my iPhone is making me sick. 😄

    This is redicilous. How can this make you sick? It's obvious prior to using their phone there is something wrong with there bodies I.e they will feel however they feel. You cannot blame an OS about your health. These people are just exaggerating and trying to find something wrong with the way iOS 7 was deigned.

    While I fully understand getting motion sickness from digital motions (I can't play most video games on PS3, I tried The Last Of Us and got 10 minutes in and was violently ill, even Little Big Planet I can't play, I've tried everything including sea bands. I have to stick to rock band or the sports games) so I can say that no, it isn't something wrong with their bodies and yes transitions and visuals on a screen can make you very ill, I think it's being exaggerated in this case. It is still possible, some are more susceptible than others.

    Some people may use it as an excuse, but it is a real issue for others.

    I was just about to post this same thing.

    I had to turn off the parallax feature nearly instantly. It was hurting my eyes too look at, I was getting a headache after just a few minutes. I was freaking out when I first installed iOS 7. The animations don't bother me other than their slowness. But there is no possible way I can use that parallax thing.

    I can see where people are coming from.

    That's funny. I am very sensitive to motion sickness. If I'm even in the same room as Super Mario Galaxy I start feeling queazy, and don't get me started on Windows Phone and Windows 8 with their gliding, sliding start screen panels of barf, but iOS 7 hasn't given me a hard time at all.

    Does the paralax (sp?) motion only appear with certain device models? I have an iPhone 4 with OS 7 and don't notice any movement and cannot find the settings everyone notes to reduce effects.

    It hasn't bothered me much, but I can see how it's possible. I think people need to get off the Apple high horse and realize that visually, iOS 7 has introduced a lot of changes. The animations when unlocking the phone and when opening and closing apps, these all involve movement that wasn't existent in previous versions of the OS. One thing that does annoy/irritate me is just the brightness of the whole thing...there is too much white and I wish they had a dark option (at least for the keyboard, like in the Messages app). The brightness combined with the excessive animations can very well cause motion sickness in some people.

    I hope Apple introduces a toggle to turn off animations in an update, and an option for a darker theme.
