While most have forgotten, Apple is actually releasing the iPhone 4 in two colors, black and white, now while initial reports said both would be available on the release date, the truth looks much different.
Earlier today, Apple released a statement explaining why the iPhone will initially only be released in white, apparently the white iPhone has “proven more challenging to manufacture than expected.”
Below is the official Apple statement
White models of Apple’s new iPhone® 4 have proven more challenging to manufacture than expected, and as a result they will not be available until the second half of July. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.
