iPhone ios 7


Apple released updates to their new iOS 7 software today, just over a week after the big iPhone makeover's initial release. The good news is that you don't have to worry about anyone looking at your sexy pics.

A hole in the original iOS 7's security allowed anybody to bypass your lock screen through the iPhone's new Control Center and see and share your photos. You mostly likely did not even know this was an issue, but iPhone has fixed it nonetheless.

Go update.

The bad news: iOS 7 will still make you sick.

At least, it's making some people sick. When Apple released iOS 7, the most significant overhaul of iDevices in eons, it was met with immediate backlash and criticism. People hate change. Your mom is confused, etc. But Apple's forums have been flooded with a different, more legit issue:

"The zoom animations everywhere on the new iOS 7 are literally making me nauseous and giving me a headache," one user complained. "It's exactly how I used to get car sick if I tried to read in the car. How do I turn them off?" 

Users complained about dizziness and vertigo-like symptoms "I just used my phone for about 20 minutes and now I feel like I'm going to vomit," one wrote. Another chimed in, "I had to go home ‘sick' from work because of the intense nausea due to using my iphone with iOS 7."

Pro tip: Go into Settings, then select General → Accessibility → Reduce Motion. Enable this. Also, adjust bold text and contrast.

Another pro tip: That's just what those geniuses at Apple will tell you. Don't bother. Really, there's nothing you can do about it, for now. 

It bothered a few users so much that they've downgraded phones in order to return to iOS 6. Hey, you do you. Others just added it to their wish list of changes they hope Apple will make with the iOS 7.0.3.

While we're wishing for things, you should be able to close all your apps at once, instead of swiping over and over to close them all. Seems simple enough. Anything else? Let's talk out our issues in the comments.
