Apple’s resolution to iPhone 5 purple haze issue: Move slightly & take another picture
Well, the Apple iPhone 5 might be selling well but from the moment it reached consumers there have been a few issues that the users have been complaining about.
Like the scuffed edges and scratched back that a few users found on their iPhone 5’s as soon as they opened the boxes which Apple termed as ‘normal for aluminium products‘. But with that there was also a purple haze issue with the camera of the iPhone 5 that users were complaining about.
And today in response to the camera issues, Apple has suggested a solution to the purple haze problem. And the solution is ‘Moving the camera slightly to change the position’. Yeah it’s as simple as that as per Apple.
Apple has explained the issue as below along with the solution:
Most small cameras, including those in every generation of iPhone, may exhibit some form of flare at the edge of the frame when capturing an image with out-of-scene light sources. 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. 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.
Well, we really don’t know if this is the real resolution to the problem or not but Apple wants that users ‘move slightly’ and get rid of the purple haze. If you own the iPhone 5, have you come across this issue?
