Apple says purple tint on Apple iPhone 5 pictures is the camera's normal behavior

0. phoneArena 01 Oct 2012, 19:39 posted on

In a manner suggesting the way that the late Steve Jobs told Apple iPhone 4 users that they were holding the phone the wrong way, allowing the left-handed death grip to cut signal strength on the phone, Apple told iPhone 5 users that the strange purple tint seen in the corners on some photos is normal...

I didn't realize that Jimmy Hendrix was a prophet. "Purple Haze" was about the iPhone 5!

"we recommend that you angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures. The purple flare in the image provided is considered normal behavior for iPhone 5′s camera.". What?? Still normal? Can software tweaks can solve the problem? I don't think so, maybe the new sapphire covered lens is the main cause of purple tint. They did a mediocre upgrades of their product but it brings a lot of major issues. Ifans still called it a luxurious premium product, are they still blind that apple now obviously misleading/fooling them? So sad...

What really is amazing to me is how people feel privileged to own a new iPhone model shortly after it comes out. Especially after waiting in line for hours or calling every single store in the city for days to check if they have iPhone 5 in stock, they look so proud once they actually get it...As if they acomplished something great. As if they are the first and the last person to ever own an iPhone. I have an iPhone 4 and I won't be upgrading to 5. Screw it I won't be brainwashed.

it's called purple fringing, due to lens, but can be eliminated with a proper software..

so apple, yeah it's normal, but it's normal to use software and other preventive measures such as coatings and special element glass to reduce that..

I got a feeling that if there is another problem, it will be deemed normal, or that's a feature..

Waiting for a minor software update. Do you think, would you think will they update all their faults? Personally they might not, we shall await and see!

even if there is a software update, they shouldn't have told the customers that these problems are normal..

why can't they just admit?

remember when the HTC One S has some build issue? They admitted it.. and the Wifi deathgrip of some of the older models..

why can't they (apple) for once admit their mistakes?
Map was so obvious they can't lie about it anymore..

we shall wait and see..

I also read an article that a customer had the same issue and the rep responded to him saying that he was holding the camera wrong. Lol. I just love the way Apple addresses its issues.
