The White iPhone 4 unlocked is something that has been discussed for a long time. Although traditionally the phone is black, the company has long been rumored to be looking into releasing a white version of the iPhone for those of us that are looking to go a little bit lighter overall.
During the most recent questioning of Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing with Apple, he stated that the white iPhone is still coming, and is currently slated for a Sprint release. He also went on to say that in his opinion, the white iPhone is a”a beauty.”
Of course, previous rumors have stated that the white iPhone was coming over a year ago, and that appeared to fall through. Various rumors have given a plethora of different reasons as to why we have not had one yet. Some blame production issues, others have said that the problem was not with production issues but was just not a priority for the company.
It is nice to see a high ranking Apple official confirm that the white iPhone is coming. The White iPhone will likely be a hot commodity, but will probably not available until he release of the iPhone 5, instead of the iPhone 4, which many were hoping would be the first version to have a white casing.
Apple has yet to comment officially on the statements that were made by Phil Schiller, but he seemed very confident with what he was saying. In fact, as he made the statement it almost seemed as if it was old news to him, despite the fact that users have desperately awaited the release of the White iPhone since the idea was first brought up several years ago following the success of the original unlocked iPhone 4.
