Apple vs. vestibular disorders
Since OS X Lion, we’ve increasingly seen aggressive animations added to Apple’s desktop OS that can trigger dizziness, motion sickness, vertigo and related symptoms. These include slide transitions when moving between full-screen apps, the ‘morphing’ animation to and from full-screen apps, the slide between Launchpad pages, and entry/exit zooms for Mission Control. iOS 7 then introduced similar animations, along with parallax effects that made people ill. And now tvOS has followed suit.
I had to switch on iOS’ ‘reduce motion’ mode within a couple hours of using iOS 7 – the parallax effect made me nauseous. I’d like to see some more fine-grained control across the board.
