    It's called "lens flare".
    You should never shoot near a small, bright light source. Adjust your shot ever so slightly and it goes away

    In other news, pictures will appear darker under certain lighting conditions. i.e. no lighting

    this happened on the 4s for me also on one of my pics, thought it was normal with any camera?, I took a lot of pics with the 5 recently with the sun out and dont see any purple flares.

    Nothing new to see. Here is a picture taken on a 4S yesterday on a sunny day.

    It is a phone camera, so user need to set realistic expectation or adjust positioning before taking the picture.

    You can even see the purple before you take the shot. Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me.

    The sapphire Apple is using is artificially made in labs, and come out crystal clear. Natural sapphire can be blue, but that's not what Apple uses in their cameras. So that couldn't be the cause of the purple. Especially after their edit saying that the same issue is found with the 4S.

    The tv show How Its Made or How Do They Do That (I forget which one) on the Science channel shows exactly how artificial sapphire is made. Is the same type of sapphire used as windshields on military attack helicopters.

    I'm so glad that MR is choosing not to report this as news b/c it most certainly isn't. Everyone wants a piece of the 24/7 media pie, and the "inevitable downfall of Apple" sure generates page views & ad hits.

    Another issue with the iPhone 5? They just keep on finding things wrong with this phone lol. Congrats to the millions of field and beta testers out there that lined up to get this thing. It's getting obvious Apple skipped that part. :p
