With any major software update, there are bound to be complaints. But one particular feature of the new Apple iOS 7 is making some users sick.

The operating system includes more animation than the previous version. Apps zoom open and closed. Some people have said the movement gives them motion sickness.

"I'm now going on day 3 of total nausea. At first I didn't want to believe it's because of iOS 7, but I can't stand even looking at non animation areas for more than a few minutes even typing this," wrote one commenter on an Apple message board.

"I had severe vertigo the minute I started using my ipad with ios 7. Lost the rest of the day to it... And not happy at all. It's the transition between the apps flying in and out. I can use it now limited time, AND ONLY if I close my eyes between apps," another wrote.

There is a solution to tone down the animation through iPhone settings, but not turn them off fully, leaving some users left to downgrade to iOS 6.

Users on Twitter have been skeptical about the sickness.

Based on the volume of comments and tweets posted, it's the real deal for many users.
