Apple has finally launched its White iPhone 4 after a rather painful wait for over 10 long months.
The device was originally scheduled to be released along with the black variant, but kept on getting postponed as according to Apple, the white version was more challenging for the manufacturers than they had originally anticipated.
At first, the company pushed back the launch date from July 2010 to the final quarter of the same year. But much to the disappoint of the fans all over the world, it was again postponed, and to make things even worse, Apple this time kept their mouths completely shut about it which eventually lead into wide spread speculation about the White iPhone 4 dying a premature death.
However, to bring back the hopes alive, Apple finally revealed last month that the device would finally hit the market during the spring this year.
Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, Apple announced today, “The white iPhone has finally arrived and it’s beautiful. We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we’ve worked to get every detail right.”
Revealing about the possible causes that resulted in this delay, Schiller further said, “It’s not as simple as making something white. There’s a lot more that goes into both the material science of it - how it holds up over time - but also in how it all works with the sensors.”
