Submission + - Apple on Purple Flare - Your Fault (cnn.com)

javelinco writes: Looks like Apple is at it again. CNN is reporting that they have responded to complaints about a "purple flare" with their new iPhone 5 sapphire cameras by saying "This can happen when a light source is positioned at an angle..." Some people are speculating that the sapphire cover is the source of the issue, which seems to occur outside the usage scenarios that Apple has described.

Overall, the reviews have been positive for the phone, with Consumer Reports calling it the "best iPhone yet". But the issues with the glare and the map app are getting a lot of press.
