A man goes in to see a doctor...
The doctor asks "What is the problem?"
The man replies "Doctor, it hurts when I do this...."
The doctor says "That's easy to cure.... Just don't do that...."

I have an album I made while making a portfolio of kids volenteering at a park, it contains around 400 photos with many of them having the sun in them without any 'purple haze'. I tried it out with 3 other iPhone 5's and I don't see this issue.

The problem is not the glass, its the sapphire lens, which causes the purple haze in direct sunlight. But being told to not point it that way is a poor excuse to their design flaw. Apple is having a tendency to use the "Your (insert verb here) wrong" excuse. Same with the aluminum being prone to scratches, in many cases out of the box directly from the manufacturer. Apple just excused that with "Anodized aluminum is soft and will scratch, its normal". They have to admit it is a design flaw that leads to the device getting scratched more than usual. Same with iOS 6 maps. Really Apple has gone downhill on quality control.

Complaints have been flying around the Internet since the release of the iPhone 5 about the camera having a “purple haze” when pointed near an extremely bright light source
My IPhone 5 does not do this sadly

Though I have no interest in buying the iPhone 5 (I bought the 4S as my first iPhone specifically because I knew I was going to keep it for quite a while---it had everything that I wanted in a phone) the explosion over this is a bit ridiculous. I honestly do not see what the problem is. So I can't take pictures of the sun... Okay. I never have and don't think I ever will.
If this were making normal pictures purple I could see that being an issue, but these are literally all pictures of the sun... I acknowledge that the glare turns purple instead of white when you take pictures of the sun, okay, but I don't acknowledge that there's anything wrong with that. You shouldn't be getting glare in your pictures in the first place... so who cares what color it is?
The "antennagate" problem? That was a real problem. This? This is just retarded to blow up over.

i'm a professional photographer www.michaelleggero.com here is the expert answer. this is a normal photographic condition called lens flare and chromatic aberration. any time you point a camera at the sun this will happen, some cameras handle it better than others but it is going to happen to one extent or another. even my professional cameras do this there is nothing they can do with any sort of update to firmware to fix this without affecting image quality in a negative way, so stop complaining or they might try to update it and that would give you the posiblility of a worse picture..
also, if you look at the sample pictures in the article they were all taken at different times with the clouds and sun in a different position. that makes a big difference in what will happen to the light

I don't think I would ever encounter this issue even if I had an affected handset because I typically use a minimal amount of brain power when taking photos and keep massive flare-causing light sources out of my exposures.
Really, I can't believe a population that usually destroys their photos with crap like Instagram are complaining in the first place!

Hell yeah, it's about time someone understands.
It's funny the blame gets put on the people that are skilled in every way possible to make a phone, the people complaining couldn't come close to understanding the complex skills it takes to design an iPhone like we have today.

I'm glad I own multiple cameras for taking pictures... otherwise I would be upset . This is a Phone, if you want a DSLR quality pic, go buy a dslr camera. This is for taking a random stupid pic at the local Starbucks when you see something funny, and then posting it to twitter so you can act like everyone gives a crap about it, it's not for photo shoots.On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like "1984."

I found no flaw in his analogy. It makes sense people aren't using their products right a lot of the time. If someone starts complaining the hammer is faulty or has a bad design because they hit their selves doesn't mean it's the hammer. Believe me If I get any other phone I can create similar effects!

I never noticed this problem on my phone.
But, I'm a GOOD photographer. I would never take a picture like the ones I've seen online with the purple lens flare.
"You're telling me I can't take a picture of the brightest thing in our frickin galaxy? I want my money back." <- idiots.
and why bother comparing pics to a DSLR? Have y'all seen how big the Nikon D300 is? It's much much bigger than the iPhone, and it's JUST a camera. If you expect a your phone's pictures to compare to a DSLR's, you're a moron.
