iPhone 5 camera purple halo effect officially addressed by Apple

Issues with a purple flare that seems to show up on photos taken with the iPhone 5 have been reported by users lately.

Users have complained that the lens flare affects photographs when the device is pointed towards the sun or bright lights.

Last week, some users have reported that the iPhone 5 camera creates a purple halo effect on some photos.

Last week a Gizmodo reader sent an e-mail to Apple’s support team that knew about the issue and the solution received from them was to “angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures.”

Now, the Cupertino company has posted a support article on its website, advising users to reposition their camera when taking pictures.

Here is Apple’s official statement on the iPhone 5 camera issue.

Symptoms

A purplish or other coloured flare, haze, or spot is imaged from out-of-scene bright light sources during still image or video capture.

Resolution

Most small cameras, including those in every generation of iPhone, may exhibit some form of flare at the edge of the frame when capturing an image with out-of-scene light sources. This can happen when a light source is positioned at an angle (usually just outside the field of view) so that it causes a reflection off the surfaces inside the camera module and onto the camera sensor. Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect.
