You may have a defective camera. My i4 had one. Post an example please.

There is a dedicated thread for this. Do a search for "iPhone 5 purple haze" and you will see it. Read through and see examples.

Okay thanks but just wondering if every iPhone 5 has this issue I was going to exchange it but if its widespread than there's no point

I didn't find out about this issue on MR until after I swapped out my phone. The original phone I got had 3 dents on it. I took a few pictures with it before swapping it out for a flawless unit.

I was deleting those pictures from my photostream today when I noticed one of them had a purple haze (top side).

My friend who works at Apple says they should be able to fix that via a software update. It has to do with variations in the optics of the camera module.

^^^^ I would return that device. It is clearly a faulty camera/part.
That photo was taken with the original phone I got, which had 3 dents. The replacement phone I got doesn't have this purple haze effect. :)

Apples tech support is now saying that you are holding it wrong. Seriously. They are telling people to not hold it in a way that the sun can interfere.
