38321087 story Apple Acknowledges iPhone 5 Camera Flaw 472 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday October 03, 2012 @07:12AM from the it's-not-a-bug-it's-a-feature dept. An anonymous reader writes "Many iPhone 5 users are complaining that its camera is adding a purple flare to their photos. Speculation is that it's caused by the new sapphire lens cover that Apple touted as 'thinner and more durable than standard glass with the ability to provide crystal clear images.' Apple's response to those who've complained? 'The purple flare in the image provided is considered normal behavior for iPhone 5's camera.'"
