‘Scuse Me While I Fix This Tripe

Matthew Panzarino nukes the idiotic rumour going around that the iPhone 5 camera’s lens is broken because it shows lens flare:

This is an optical effect sometimes called purple fringing, which can be related to a variety of things including stray infrared light, stray UV light, anti-reflective lens coatings, image processing or bloom from overexposure. These effects are exacerbated in very bright light and with lens flare. […]

The iPhone 5′s image is better by far and actually produces reduced flare, so I’d call that an improvement.

Hence my stupid link title.
