The white unlocked iPhone 4, up until this point has seemed like a myth within the tech industry. It has long been rumored to be on the way but Apple has never seemed willing to pull the trigger and offer the device in any color but black. However, recent evidence suggests that perhaps we can expect to see the white iPhone available to consumers as early as Spring of 2011. It is something that has been highly anticipated by many of their users and will probably be a popular choice for many of their users who have been using the black version of the device for a number of years.
The white iPhone was previously delayed due to production problems that dealt with the “home” button. Apple had only been manufacturing one kind of button, and the black button did not fit the theme of the white iPhone in the early stages of production so the entire idea was scrapped. Now, apparently they have fixed these issues and are planning on bringing the white iPhone to customers in Spring of 2011.
On the in-store document that mentions the forthcoming release of the iPhone 4, there is no mention of the rumored release of the iPhone on Verizon. Of course, you wouldn’t expect them to leak a release as big as that on an in-store document, but the fact that they mentioned the now-mythical white iPhone on that same document is a little surprising. It is good to see that they have been able to fix their production issues and will be able to bring a white iPhone, something that many of their customers have been anxiously awaiting the release of for a number of years. Maybe after its release we will be able to see some interesting data regarding how many people make the switch from black to white iPhone 4 unlocked.
