It’s recently been confirmed by multiple sources that Apple will indeed unveil the long-awaited white iPhone 4 in the coming weeks. Various rumors have pointed to the white iPhone over the last 10 months, but these last set of reports affirm a definite release in the next few weeks.

The Wall Street Journal has gotten word directly from Apple that the white iPhone will debut “this spring.” Bloomberg recently reported this news with added info that the device will be available on AT&T and Verizon.

From The Journal,

“Apple said Thursday the white iPhone was would be released in the spring, reiterating a projection the company made in October. The company had previously indicated that manufacturing problems had delayed its release.”

The Journal also adds some info about the iPhone 4’s success,

“Despite all of this, however, the iPhone has been a hit with consumers. Apple sold roughly 16.2 million iPhones in its holiday quarter, an 86% jump over the same time a year prior. Analysts say the white iPhone will likely spur additional demand, which may help the company power through the summer quarter.”

For those of us that have already jumped on the iPhone 4 bandwagon, the white version isn’t really that big of a deal (unless you’re just obsessed with the color white). But for those that are considering purchasing their first iPhone or upgrading from an older generation, the white iPhone 4 is a nice option.

The hopes for a summer iPhone 5 announcement have pretty much died, but it looks like Apple will be able to sit comfortably on iPhone 4 sales for awhile longer.

Are you planning on buying the white iPhone 4? If you are ready to upgrade your contract, will you hold out for the iPhone 5 instead?

    Iphone 5 ….. balls its not out mid year like before. All verizons fault

  • Nico

    I’ll be happy with the iPhone 4… for a while. I’ve had mine since last June and I have no desire to get rid of it. The sleep button is broke though, my warranty ends in July. Hopefully the white one comes out this month so maybe the Apple store can make a black to white trade 🙂

  • Well, that didn’t take long.

    • VnABC

      LOL
      Anyway, I don’t think anyone waits for white one anymore.

    @Alex Do you want one?

    • Hmm.. good question. I’m not really into the whole “white” look for Apple devices, so probably not. I like the black and metallic look. 🙂

  • T-Mizzle

    I want a white iPhone… but I think I will wait for 5. I am still loving my 3Gs. I hope white will be an option for 5… ugh! That would be so mean—to not produce iPhone 5 in white!

  • Ras

    All you stupid fucks are like OMG IT’S A WHITE IPHONE.GONNA GET ONE !! I mean come on.the iPhone 5 is gonna be out just in 2 months

    • Alec

      Really? Cause not a single person on here said they were planning on buying one? Do you. Read before you speak?

    I bet when the white iPhone 4 comes out the will be some big lines for the first couple of days. Remember a lot of people are coin to buy it just to resale them. Here in LosAngeles you can find an iPhone 4 on criagslist for about $300 no box and $350-$400 with box no scratches, cheap huh!!!

    Now when the iPhone 5 comes out they will have it in white and black, apple has mastered the color of white.

    The white iPad 2 has a diffrent kinda glass then from the iPhone 4 and they have secseffly stuck the paint right on there. People save your money, WAIT FOR THE IPHONE 5 Apple is trying to drain the iPhone 4 for it’s last penny.

    I’m okay. My iPhone is a 32GB. The most I can make off it is 550. A new one would cost me 756 for a Verizon one since I just got this one in Feb. That is a 32 GB. All that for a color? I have a better chance voiding my warranty and paying 100 for some one to change the parts for me.

  • Manuel

    Oh, and ill believe it when I see it. Its already spring, there isn’t a white iPhone. Its pretty retarded for Apple to even consider making this phone now but even more so, that people are waiting for it still. I hate cases and I know some people do too, but 90% of white iPhone users will case their phone.

  • adidas101

    @ras no it wont. They’ve confirmed a white 4 in spring. Not a 5. 5 is going to come out later. Fucking over at&t but making it possible for early verizon upgrades maybe? Verizon got the Iphone in Wat jan? So y not hold out n capitalize on buyers from both at&t n verizon instead of half users using old phone n half getting the new

  • tytehjjkjygh

    Compare the white ipad with the black ipad. Thats why I want white and no, i currently do not have n iphone.

  • Thor

    The real question is if the white is any more durable. Will the glass shatter when it comes in contact with a speck of dust?
