How to reduce motion to prevent vertigo on your iPhone and iPad
iOS 7 features a parallax effect that lets icons and backgrounds come alive when you tilt and move your iPhone or iPad. Unfortunately, some folks don't handle this effect well and it can result in motion sickness or vertigo symptoms. If this is a concern for you, there's an easy way to turn the effect off.
- Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
- Now tap on General.
- Tap on Accessibility.
- Choose the option for Reduce Motion and turn the option to On.
That's all there is to it. Not only does iOS not have movable backgrounds anymore, transitions are also sped up to simply fade in and out. This results in much snappier response times when jumping into apps and back out.
