After a 10 month delay, it looks as though the white iPhone 4 will finally be available by the end of this month. According to a report from Bloomberg Buisnessweek, sources familiar with Apple’s secret release plans say that the mystical white iPhone 4 will indeed ship in the “next few weeks.”

Although it’s unclear as to whether Apple will hold a media event for the white iPhone’s launch, it appears that the device will be unveiled very soon…

“Apple Inc. will begin selling a white model of the iPhone 4 in the next few weeks after a 10- month delay, according to three people familiar with the plans.

The new version will be available from AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless by the end of April, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The release was stalled as Apple resolved manufacturing challenges, including paint that peeled under heat, one person said.”

As Bloomberg points out in the report, Apple originally delayed the white iPhone 4 due to multiple production issues.

“After releasing the iPhone 4 in June, Apple announced the delay of a white version because of unspecified manufacturing trouble. Production was also delayed because of complications with a sensor used in the device, one of the people said.”

This report is backed up by a previous statement from Apple’s VP of Marketing, Phil Schiller. Phil tweeted last month that, “the white iPhone will be available this spring.”

We’ve heard lots of rumors about the white iPhone 4, but this one seems to be the most credible yet. There will most likely be a white iPhone announcement later this month.

What do you think of this news? Will the white iPhone 4 be enough of a buying incentive to upgrade? Or will you be waiting for the iPhone 5?

      at this point who really cares about the white iphone. if anything, apple should release it this summer along with iOS 5 and more storage and call it the iphone 4.5 or iphone 4G.

  • takean

    not to be ugly..but at this stage of theg ame…who cares about a white iphone 4. I have mine and I’m fine with it being black. and another iphone is about to come out again so why bother with a white one unless you plan on selling it to make a profit.

  • BLiNK

    i told myself that i would kick my dog everytime i read a new white iPhone rumor.. Michael Vick would probably even tell me to stop

  • The white iPhone comes out at the end of every month….

  • dabe

    Sometimes the rumurs on here are actually correct. Keep up the good work on this blog, the best article on here yet was about the old woman in Israel busted smuggling iPhones.

      When you post every rumor to ever surface on the internet, you’re bound to find a truthful one at some point. But at what cost? Making dozens of garbage posts that never serve any purpose. This has got to be the 20th time I have heard that the white iPhone is coming out. Not to mention the iPhone5 coming out in June, then September then 2012 then production starting in September then last week of May then June again.

        I’m not going to lie, your kinda right 🙁 However, its a blog. Their job is to post rumors, news, and so forth. I’m sure we’ve seen talk about the Verizon iPhone on other blogs a billion times as rumors. In the end, its just what it is. They post, we read. We can always not read any more.
