Ever since the iPhone 5 went on sale, some of the users have been complaining about the purple haze seen when a bright light source is just visible in the frame.

Apple has finally responded to these complaints on their support website, saying that the purple haze seen in the iPhone 5 camera images is normal for small cameras and is present in every generation of the iPhone.

The reason for the haze and the lens flare is said to be the reflections of the light inside the camera assembly. Apple's solution to this problem is to not point the camera directly at a bright light source, which is something every good photographer should ideally know.

As we have reported before, even the experts at Digital Photography Review have dismissed this as a non-issue, asking users to not worry and avoid putting bright lights near the edges of the frame while shooting.
