Apple Says White iPhone 4 Won’t Be Available Until Mid July

White iPhone 4

Those of you who are waiting for the White iPhone 4 shouldn’t hold their breath. Apple just released a short statement in which it says the White iPhone won’t be available until mid July.

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.

Now why is it harder to make an iPhone in white? I have no idea but it seems to me the color is not the issue here and that Apple is facing other challenges they’d rather not disclose.

At any rates, now you know that if you want a White iPhone 4, you’re going to have to wait another month. Is that another “fail” to add to the list of this iPhone 4 launch?

    I dunno what to do now. Wait for the one I really want or settle for the black one.

    has anyone actually looked at the whit iphone, it is so ugly

  • Eric

    i have a white 3gs but i agree, the white on the front of the iphone 4 is not attractive at all. The only reason i like the white 3gs is because the front of it is all black still.

  • Nate

    @Eric that is my thinking exactly

  • Burge

    What the fuck are you lot on about the White one looks way better than the black un, evey one what the black one and all look the same,
    Like Apple put it… THINK DIFFERENT….

  • Eric

    @Burge either learn how to type on ur iPhone please or learn how to spell all togeather, ur post was really hard to read lol oh it’s ur opinion if u like the white or the black, I personally don’t give a crap about any color phone cuz I am gonna put a badass case on it anyways!

  • Burge

    @Eric
    If your don’t give a crap then why on your first post are you saying white one is not attractive, make your mind up ! As for– badass case– how old are you ? 13 ? My son talks like that .
    Sorry for typo by the way !

    @ Eric, Burge is from another country, in case you didn’t pick up on his accent. He can spell just fine. Maybe you have some literacy issues? (That means you can’t read good) Lol! Also, the white iPhone is exponentially better looking than the black one and, probably better than your “Bad Ass” case hahahahahaha….

    Building a device that drops in your shirt pocket and runs at least 4 oscillators, 3 radio frequency transceivers and a highspeed computer in a tiny foot print that works almost every time is really hard to do. Routing one wire wrong can reder it inoprareve.

    The plastic/glass/metal body plays a role as a shield, heat sink, ground plane for the antenna and must work in the molds already in use. Making one mold for one side a case may cost $30,000 or $40,000 bucks and they need dozens. Just one prameter of the materil the case is made from may make unusable for a phone. It may be cosmetic, it could be electronic, or just a problem with it feeding on dry or damp days.
