Just before the launch of iPhone 4, Apple had announced that due to some manufacturing issues the White iPhone 4 would not launch till the second half of July. Then, in the recent press conference, Steve Jobs mentioned that Apple would ship the white iPhone 4 till the end of July. Even after that, many blogs reported that the white iPhone 4 still has some manufacturing issues. Today, Apple has announced that there will be further delays to the launch of the white iPhone 4 and this time around, the delay is way longer then expected. Apple says the white iPhone will be avialable later this year!
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.
We’re sure that’s going to leave some customers disappointed, but let’s face it — sales are so brisk at the moment most of us are having a tough time getting an iPhone at all, let alone the white model.
Looks like white iPhone has some serious manufacturing issues and now it is delayed due to quality control issues related to the white coloring in the front glass.
Those who were waiting for the launch of the white iPhone 4 will surely be disappointed since waiting for another four to five months is not that easy. May be they should just buy a black iPhone 4 rather than waiting for the white one which may get another delay later this year.
