Apple releases security update for iOS 7 but users are still complaining about motion sickness
Minor updated designated iOS 7.0.2 fixes lock-screen exploit
Friday 27 September 2013
Apple has released an update for its iOS 7 operating system aimed at fixing a security flaw that allowed access to the phone even when locked.
The flaw was discovered just hours after iOS 7 became public and involved using the new control center feature (a swipe-up panel that gives quick access to settings and apps) to access iPhone owners’ photos and social network accounts.
The update, designated version number iOS 7.0.2, can be downloaded for free and is around 20MB in size. After installing it none of the methods previously used to bypass the lockscreen can be successfully used.
However, recent reports suggest that Apple might need and update to fix more than just security bugs, with some complaining that the new user interface is causing them motion sickness.
A post on Apple’s support forums titled “Any way to turn off iOS 7 navigation animations?” details the problem:
“The zoom animations everywhere on the new iOS 7 are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache. It's exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car.”
Others echoed these complaints in the forum and on twitter, blaming the new UI’s zooming animations as it opens and closes apps, and the parallax effect – a new feature that gives the illusion of depth to the home screen by moving the background relative to the user’s movement of the phone.
Apple does include an option in the accessibility subsection of settings that allows users to ‘reduce motion’, but this only removes the parallax effect and not the animations for apps.
