Welcome back!

True story, I took a pic with my 5 and our old 4 and they both had the purple haze and its natural.

Thanks for the warm welcome back ive been really busy lately working. I am glad to hear that this issue is not something new then! I never had this issue with any of my iPhone's dating all the way back to 2007 however when I phoned Apple they told me that it was a design flaw with the camera system and that engineers are working on a fix. It's weird because it's not every picture it seems to be maybe 1 picture out of 40 taken which isn't bad at all.

I'm actually surprised Apple gave you a second iP5 considering it's a known issue, and one that has been acknowledged by Apple! You're must have a Genius Bar (and an Apple Store manager) that really wanted to get you out of there ASAP. Was it near closing time when you went?

No I didn't get it from Apple I just purchased my iP5 roughly 2 weeks ago from radio shack when we signed up for sprint. When I first noticed the issue I called Apple about it and I told her on the phone that I was going to go the radio shack route first but she told me over the phone that if that did not work (which it did) that Apple would replace it.

I know this off topic but I didn't want to create another thread ... does anyone have the new Spigen GLAS.tr for the iP5? If so how is the fitment? I have the otterbox commuter and I want to make sure it's "case friendly" the youtube video's just don't do it justice.
