That said, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 99.9% of photos suffering from this are terrible, anyway, and the ones that weren't will look fine with 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 complaining 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 photographers use polarised filters, take multiple shots, and use a 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?

Is that... Jesus?

While I've never experienced this problem on any of my iPhones up to & including the 4S or any of my android phones, it seems odd to me that every time apple have a problem with their devices, their response is often, "all phones do it, so shut up"

Are you seriously comparing a NASA camera, which probably has a massive lens aperture and sensor to accomodate a far wider scope, to the iPhone? And justifying the purple effect on the iPhone? This NASA camera can probably still capture the sun in the other hemisphere while it's setting in one. Jesus probably used the iPhone 5 to capture the Big Bang?
Funny, the only likes you've got on your post are from the well known iToots, who'll toot their horn no matter what.

I bloody damn well am! Flares can happen with any camera. So what's your point?

Yes, these are camera words. No, I don't think you have any idea what you're talking about.

It's still a completely invalid comparison

Why. Please tell me what kind of camera that NASA picture was taken with, because a lot of them are taken with small sensor web cams.
This isn't magic, light goes into a little hole, and a sensor picks it up. Depending on the light source, angle, and the depth of the lens, flare can happen, the camera is irrelevant.

I understand what apple is saying, but there is a quality problem if no previous phones has the purple effect. Yes. This can happen on different devices but it appears to be more likely with the 5
