New iPod touch Suffers From “Purple Haze” Issue to a Limited Extent

Apple’s latest and greatest iPod touch has been heralded as the best iPod yet – essentially, an iPhone without the phone (and that pesky cellular contract). In that light, this makes sense: the iPod touch’s camera, as shown by forum member Star Scream, seems to suffer from a similar issue as the iPhone 5′s camera does.

The iPhone 5′s camera system has been reported to have issues with a purple flare affecting images in which a bright light source is against a comparatively dark background. This issue has also been disputed: most smartphones are affected by the same problem, albeit to a more limited extend in many cases. Given the similarity between the iPhone 5 and the new iPod touch, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the iPod touch also exhibits this behavior.
