    Haven't seen the purple in any of my shots. And the sun was just of screen.

    In my opinion the rooftops and the tops of the trees shouldn't be purple.

    You're holding it wrong.

    It's not about how you hold it... it's how you compose the shot, and where any prominent light source is... people are aiming wrong.

    edit to add... as seen on Twitter... from iMore's own Leanna Lofte: "@llofte: My $3000 camera with $500 lens just produced purple flare. ZOMG! http://t.co/GIDtO2z2 "

    You still dont get it, I'll try again, the purple fringe is an issue that pretty much all cameras have and we get that, however.. the ip5 seems to show it a lot more than other phones, it could certainly be the coating on the sapphire crystal or the thinness of the phone, in any case it is an issue, now... Is it something worth of everybody swapping phones and panicking??? NO... but you cant deny is an issue when there are pictures taken at the same " angle" with the ip4 and no fringing is seen.
    It is an issue that will probably not affect the majority of the people but it's still a problem.
    Except the pictures you posted we're of different angles. Pictures with identical angles show the exact same issue, at nearly the same intensity.

    So any hope of a software solution? Like turning the flare white. One that doesn't involve any work from me. :P

    Personally the only time I've had the purple haze was when I was deliberately looking for it. Suppose it'll be a bigger problem during panoramas beyond the first frame.
    NOPE...

    So lucky, not happen to my i5. But if it happens, I'll be sure to report it here.

    I dont think you read the description of the pics, I was unable to get the fringe with the 3gs regardless of the angle, I try to angle the camera in several positions but the fringe just never showed up for those particular pics, on the 5 it showed up as soon as I frame it.

    3GS has a crummy camera, and far inferior optics, which is why it's more difficult to do.

    I think this thread is causing the purple haze, My 5 never had the purple haze until I started reading this thread, now I have purple haze all through my brain.
