Apple is so full of it.

Gosh! Have we really gone this far? So far that we all believed that the "it just works" mentality has entitled us to just complain about any thing, and blame this on a design defect?
The simple fact that people are complain about lens flares and chromatic aberrations just shows how much they absolutely do not know how lens, light, refractions and other high-school physics work. They probably were sleeping in class, or just simply erased those teachings from their memory because they classified this as "Why am I learning this, it will not be useful to me in real life".
What's next? Are they going to complain that we cannot use the phone under water, and that we cannot make phone calls because the battery is dead?
Lens flares, chromatic aberrations, etc., are as old as lenses and cameras. That means centuries. Why do you think photographs use polarised filters, take multiple shots, and use the plethora of accessories when working with intense light source? For the fun of it, perhaps?
Cameras use many lenses. Light trapped between lens components, the coating of the lenses, the materials use to fabricate the lenses, can all create aberrations in the output. And this holds true for cheap cameras to very expensive ones.
Look at this NASA-taken picture. Tell me what you see at the top of the picture. Right… (Purple) lens flare! If it can happen on a picture taken by a camera used by NASA, why could it not happen on an iPhone or any other cameras for that matter?

It's dark here now, but I`m gonna take a few photos with my phone tomorrow and purposely try to get a purple lens flare
Pretty sure I have taken photos directly at the sun to see how they turned out and not ended up with a purple anything on them, just dark with a bright spot where the sun is, but I`ll have a go tomorrow

Forget that test. How about trying to get rid of the orange/red tint bang in the middle of photos taken with a lumia (800?)

I don't think the issue is that it can happen on other phones/cameras. Any one with a inkling of knowledge of photography knows it happens.
What the issue seems to be is that it happens a lot more with the iPhone than any other smartphone and a tweak to the software could probably cure it more often than not.
Myself and a friend have tried this out me using a Desire HD and him using the iPhone 5 and i have to say, although i could replicate the purple flare, it did take a lot more work where as the iPhone done it more often than not.

Apparently it only happens with indoor shots under incandescent lighting, but you can still make it out here...
I looked over quite a few of them, but can't find any red tint.
