    Hi guys, i realised i have an annoying purple smudge on my camera after dropping my phone. How can i remove it? Change the whole lens? What is causing it?

    Does the outer lens look like its moved if not the camera may have. In the process the angle may have changed lightly causing a reflection of sorts.

    You should do a search about the purple smudge. It was quite common for the iPhone 5 and it happened to me. Apple was replacing units that were affected. I didn't want to lose my jailbreak at the time so I replaced the camera part in mine myself.

    It's not going away on its own.
