There’s Maps, of course — though that’s not really exclusive to the iPhone 5 — the purple haze that sometimes appears in photos, and the black model is susceptible to chips and scratches.

There is an open discussion on Apple’s discussion forum where iPhone 4S owners are reporting problems they are having with their new phones display.
