Purple Haze on iPhone

We’ve just learned that the iPhone 5 camera may be faulty, showing a purple haze (yep, I said it) in certain lighting conditions. If you take a picture with the iPhone 5, and there’s a bright light that’s outside of the frame, you’ll see a purple tint come across the image. This is possibly due to the Sapphire glass used in the camera’s lens. As we all know, Sapphire is a purple/bluish gem, and though the purple tint isn’t noticeable without that bright glare from an off-screen light, it can really fudge up some pictures if the conditions aren’t just right. The phone is smart enough, however, to compensate in certain situations. Read the full story at TechCrunch.
