Purple Haze in iPhone 5 camera
Tired of the iPhone bashing? I thought not.
The iPhone 5’s new camera is supposed to be incredibly amazing with improved low-light performance and a fancy crystal sapphire lens that is less prone to scratching, but for many users though, the new camera is having a weird issue where a purple halo or flare splashes across a photo when a bright light source is just outside the frame, and there’s no way to get rid of it.Read more at http://www.cultofmac.com/192996/major-iphone-5-camera-issue-is-causing-purple-halo-effect-on-photos/#xiCPGPdFc1fD3tSM.99
I am also experiencing this issue. Not all iPhones are affected, however. I'll have to go back to the Apple store and exchange.
