Apple confirms White iPhone 4 delay

Apple has announced in a press statement to the media there will be a delay in bringing the white iPhone 4 to market, despite claiming at their recent press conference it will be available in July.

The statement comes after a month of waiting and the question constantly being asked to Apple store staff and also the handset resellers, as to when the white iPhone 4 will arrive with many supposedly holding out for that very model.

The announcement by Apple states: "White models of Apple's new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year."

No more further details than later this year have been given to the media, which will gravely upset those who saw the slide from their impromptu press conference of late that mentioned "End of July" for its arrival.

Rumours surrounding the delay are that the mass production of the cases or iPhone 4 bumpers has taken precedence, which would make perfect sense - as 3 million customers need them to be able to make and receive phone calls.
