A new Reduce Motion feature has been added to reduce any sickness caused by the way apps worked previously

Problems with the iOS 7 started flooding in once it was launched back in September and it seems like there was a serious trouble for some people because they started claiming about nausea and dizziness which they said was the result of the changes in the interface. This new software which came along with a lot of major alterations for the phone came with certain applications the use of which left the users feeling sick and nauseated. But all these problems seemed to be addressed properly by the new iOS 7.1 update which just came out a couple of days ago. The issues related to parallax and zooming animations appear to have been solved at last.

With iOS 7 came some big plans for the company's software and there was a shift from the skeuomorphism of iOS 6 towards a flatter, brighter aesthetic. For some this change proved to be great while for some, the way in which various screens, menus and UI elements transitioned, was a source of annoyance and it made them sick. Though such people with nausea complaints were very few and they made up a little chunk of the Apple users but the company still had to look for a solution and it came with the iOS 7.1 update. A Reduce Motion feature has been added and with it activation, iOS now uses cross-fade effects as opposed to sliding and zooming which is easier on the eyes.
