Apple recently announced that the white iPhone 4 will be launched some time next year, further delaying the launch of the device.
The white iPhone was set to be launched by the end of July this year.
A number of rumours have circulated around the blogsphere, attempting to throw some light on this unprecedented delay.
Some believe that the white iPhone 4 is in fact the Verizon iPhone, while others believe that the white iPhone will be the iPhone 5.
However, one such rumour, that makes much more sense than the others, claims that the white case of the device has compromised the camera, so causing the delay.
According to Apple-related web blog Cult of Mac, a source with connections to Apple has said that the camera on the white iPhone is incapable of taking good pictures.
The reason for this is that the white-coloured case lets the light slip back in the phone, specially when the flash is used.
“You don’t get accurate pictures on the white iPhone because of the colour of the glass back. It washes out the pictures.” the source said.
