Apple Acknowledges iPhone 5 Camera Problem, Says You’re Holding It Wrong
 

 

[pic - click to view]



After initially denying it, Apple has acknowledged the iPhone 5's purple flare camera problem in an email to a Gizmodo reader. Their solution: "Angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures."

Here's their complete answer:

Dear Matt,

Our engineering team just gave me this information and 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. If you wish to reach me regarding this case number *********, please contact me at 1-877-***-**** ext. *******. I currently work Thursday-Monday: 7:00am - 3:30pm Mountain Time. If you reach my voicemail, please leave your name, phone number, case number and the best time to reach you. Email is ***********@apple.com.

Sincerely,
Debby
AppleCare Support

Long time Gizmodo reader Matt Van Gastel received this email after a long call with Apple support regarding the Purple Flare problem in his phone, which apparently is a feature common to every iPhone 5:

Initially I was told that it shouldn't happen and that it is strange. My call was escalated to a senior support individual who again said it was odd and shouldn't happen. I sent her some pics of the issue and she in turn sent them to the engineering team.

Her final response is what you can see at the top of this article. Some photography experts have speculated that the purple flare is a product of the sapphire glass covering the iPhone 5's camera.

So it is final, folks: Apple says that, if your photos have a purple flare, this is totally normal behavior of the iPhone 5's camera. You are just holding it wrong.

Also, it's not Apple's fault that the Sun is purple. [Thanks Matt!]

Emphasis added.—Ed.

Full of sh*t, I aint seen a purple haze, distorted keyboard and my maps work just fine. Only thing I hate is that they changed the dock connector so i gotta buy a extra cable (although it does seem to charge much faster) and to me the 4 inch screen looks weird being skinny.

Not saying that some iPhones dont have problems, sh*t if you making millions of phones by the masses, you would expect some will have some issues. sh*t I got a launch day S3 and it had plenty issues. Saying all that to say, every single iPhone wont have this problem, like every other S3 didnt have the same problems i had. Get the fux over it.

It's the wireless section in a forum. What do you think this website is for? If you want to ignore the articles showing Apples fu*k ups, go on iMore.com or macrumors and discuss with others who believe the delusional Apple does no wrong motto.

So me pointing out Android users obsession with Apple threads = me thinking Apple can do no wrong?

Facts vs a.ssumptions

Like somebody else said:
"The best way to get Android fans together? Make an Apple thread"

You guys are just as bad, if not worse than the isheep you hate
