Apple recently issued a statement explaining that customers wouldn’t be able to get their hands on the white model iPhone 4 until later this year.
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. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.
Subsequent reports detailed that the hold up was due to trouble balancing the tone of white Apple wants while simultaneously preventing light from bleeding out. Now, BGR reports that Apple may have moved past this roadblock.
In closing, our source let us know that Apple might have actually worked through these issues and that white iPhone 4s might not be so far away from shipping in the near future. Apple just probably left it open-ended so they wouldn’t crush expectations again. And again.
