When Apple officially announced its shiny new kit, it immediately started a craze. On the first day the new iPhone was available for pre-order, Apple’s pre-order stock was sold out. On its official release date, thousands of Apple fans flocked to Apple retail stores, queuing for hours just to purchase the iPhone 5. Sadly, excitement quickly turned to disappointment when the phone’s flaws started popping up.
The first flaw to plague the iPhone 5 was the new Apple Maps app that replaced Google Maps with iOS 6. The app turned out to be bug-infested, which turned out to be a complete mess. The second flaw affected the black versions of the new iPhone. Owners of the iPhone 5 black noticed that their new kit was easily scratched. To add insult to injury, Apple brushed the problem off and called it “normal”. The third flaw is the purple haze effect. Captured images using the phone’s camera were affected by a purple halo. This happened when bright light entered the camera’s lens. Apple advised its customers to simply point the lens in a different direction. The last issue has just surfaced. Owners are complaining that a green glow escapes the edges of the phone’s display, according to Pocketnow.

It seems the issue only occurs upon waking the handset from sleep. It also seems to be a minor problem, which disappears after a few seconds. However, Apple doesn’t seem to think it’s a minor problem since it has replaced the handsets with a ne iPhone 5 when customers complained about the green glow issue.
Apple is yet to mention the green glow issue or what is causing the problem.
