Apple Pushes White iPhone 4 to Spring 2011

| News

Apple’s delayed white iPhone 4 launch has been pushed back yet again. Now the white version of the combination iPod and smartphone isn’t expected to hit store shelves until next spring.

Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller confirmed the new delay to Forbes, but didn’t offer an explanation as to why the white iPhone 4 launch has been pushed out yet again.

The phantom white iPhone 4

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 4 the company showed of both black and white versions. By the time the next generation iPhone shipped, however, only the black models were available along with a promise that white models would be available soon.

So far, the only explanation Apple has offered for the delay is that the white models are “more challenging” to build than anticipated.

Assuming Apple continues with its current iPhone update cycle, new models should be available around June, which means the white iPhone 4 may be available for only a couple months before the next upgrade launch.

I don?t care what you say, Apple has been failure after failure. Maybe the white model had more defects than the black one.

What is the white substance, polycarbonate? Is it the same substance as in the black model except for the white color. I am wondering if they are having a problem getting consistent white or there is a color shift/refraction through the glass.

OH, bad new for white iphone fans! Especially the one who are waiting for it!
White is a traditional color for Apple products, and the white one is really cool and lovely, but I think the black also tempting too, even looks a little mystical, so I got it. It is fantastic too…
The iP4’s picture definition ...I’m speachless….personally I really like the grouping of apps much tidier than before and the camera zoom. And as the iPhone 4 high-definition video clips, watch video on IPhone 4 are so cool and amazing! and I have download the iPhone 4 Video Converter from iFunia, Im ready for enjoying my favourite movies on the go!

hmm, maybe I will also get the white one then this one give to my son!

My wife and I each bought an iPhone 3G. I got the black model and she got the white one so that we could distinguish them. The next thing we did was put cases on them. Color doesn’t matter to much if the iPhone is kept in a case.
