    FYI - I am not talking about purple haze.

    Anyways, so I started noticing that all pictures that are taken with my IPhone 5 camera had this weird spot on all the photos. The spot remains in the same spot (meaning if the spot is on the bottom and I rotate the phone completely it will now be at the top).

    Irritated, I figured I got an IPhone that had a piece of dust in the lens or something. However, when I zoom in on the pictures I see that there this spot is a purple smudge. (See below).

    Looking back the first couple images I took with the camera did not have the smudge. Has anyone else seen this before? Is this a software issue?

    its hardware, goto apple and have them replace it.
