Many have criticized Apple for creating an OS that is so different from the previous version while releasing new phones that are nearly the same as the older models.  Apple poured a lot of work and money into creation of the new iOS 7, but skipped out on the possibility of it giving users motion sickness.

The animations were supposed to be a great new feature, but they instead have become a disastrous, sickening issue for some sensitive users, as ABC News reports. Transitions between individual apps and the home screen are having a dizzying, stomach-churning effect on many iOS 7 users, such as Michelle Barna. After getting nauseous when exploring iOS 7 on a friend’s phone, she has become understandably hesitant to update her own device.

An entire message thread has been started on Apple’s forum, attracting many frustrated iOS 7 users who are suffering from the same effect. Some are quite upset that a downgrade is not available. They claim numerous unwanted physical side effects, such as eye pain, dizziness, vertigo, and more.  Many have been rendered unable to use their devices because of the issue.  There is a same conversation going on in Twitter.

Not all of the people reporting health issues resulting from iOS 7 usage normally suffer motion sickness and such effects. Some report having been on cruise ships, in airplanes, cars, and in several other situations where motion sickness might result without ever having a similar problem. Apparently, this is an occurrence that only results for them when using iOS 7. One equated using the OS to being on a roller coaster.
