If you've been using your iPhone 5 since the start and have never noticed a little bit of the ol' Purple Haze appearing at the edge of your photos, you're lucky – Apple has just addressed this situation occurring with some users in an official statement today. It would appear that if you've got a light source right outside the viewing area of your iPhone 5?s camera lens, you get a purple light leak into your final photo product. Apple today has let it be known that users should be pointing cameras away from bright light sources to do away with the oddity altogether.
