This is bad news for those who have been holding out on buying an iPhone simply because they want the white version According to Apple it’s going to be a while longer.
It was only last week that Apple mentioned the white iPhone 4 delay during their press conference, during the conference they said that the phone would make the way to stores at the end of July, however earlier today Apple released a very brief press release citing manufacturing challenges and a new delivery estimate for the white model: “later this year.”
Apple confesses that “White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year,” However they quickly add that “The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.”
So how about it, white iPhone 4 fans: Do you plan to wait until “later this year” to get one? Or will you settle for the black model?
