"Our engineering team just gave me this information and we recommend that you angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures," read the e-mail, as reported by Gizmodo. "The purple flare in the image provided is considered normal behavior for iPhone 5's camera."

It's funny anyone would expose their chip to direct sunlight. Never take a photo into the sun.

I would agree if it only happened with sunlight, apparently its any light source.  Google for pics, there are thousands of them and people complaining.


I don't see why they could make a software fix for it to reduce the purple.


sounds to me the decision to use a sapphire lens wasn't a good one.  Reminds of common problems with purple/blue fringes from pro Sony lenses.
