Apple have made an official response to the purple haze problem on the iPhone 5 camera.

They say that most small cameras will exhibit some sort of haze at the edge of the frame. Apple recommends that users tilt the camera slightly or shield it with their hand to eliminate flare on the lens.

Apple said the flare is due to light reflecting off the surfaces in the camera module and bouncing back off the sensor.

Take a look at the Apple website to see the response.

It doesn't explain why the iPhone 5 images seem to exhibit worse flare than the iPhone 4. The 'response' is pretty bland.

Could be worse than previous models simply because some components are in different positions, angles of incidence vary, etc.

It is a poor response though – in effect they are saying “This is how it is. You bought the phone, it’s your problem now. Live with it.”

It may be a frank comment on the quality of cheap digital cameras, but it doesn’t seem very good PR.
