iPhone 5 camera purple flare

Apple's fix for iPhone 5 camera's purple flare?
Don't hold it like that!



Apple has addressed the purple flares and streaks that show up on some iPhone 5 pictures, but its solution for the problem is quite disappointing.

On a support page on the Apple website, the Cupertino tech company said this is an issue that affects most small cameras, including past iPhones.

"This can happen when a light source is positioned at an angle (usually just outside the field of view) so that it causes a reflection off the surfaces inside the camera module and onto the camera sensor," Apple said.

The purple streaks are not something that users have complained about on past iPhones and when The Times tested the iPhone 5 compared with an iPhone 4 camera, the issue only seemed to occur with the newer model.

Regardless, Apple has a simple yet frustrating solution.

"Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect," the company says on its site.

Essentially, Apple wants you to hold the camera differently.
