Apple delays white iPhone

A few days ago Apple reported that it would delay the release of its eagerly anticipated white iPhone again, this time until next spring.


The latest version of the popular handset, the iPhone 4, was released in June, but the white model was delayed first to July, then to the end of the year and now to early next year.

“We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone again,” Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said, but, however, she declined to explain the reasons of the delay.

Apple has never said exactly why it is so troublesome to produce the white version of the iPhone 4. The company has only mentioned that the white model was “more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected.”

Apple-focused blogs have been guesssing the reasons for months, suggesting problems with color-matching to an issue with the device’s backlight.

We should say, that color aside, Apple is not having any trouble selling its smartphone. Tha black iPhone has fueled Apple’s growth over the past few years.
