Written By Sam on 23 July 2010

If you are an iPhone enthusiast and are looking to buy a White iPhone 4 then here is a very sad news for your from Apple. Apple has released a press statement today saying that the White iPhone 4 will not be available until later this year. Recently Steve Jobs announced in a conference that White iPhone 4 will be available bu July 30th and today’s news moves the date to later this year.

Statement by Apple on White iPhone 4

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. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

Apple says that it is becoming very difficult to manufacture the White iPhone 4. “Lens Technology“, a Chinese company, is responsible for manufacturing the white iPhone 4 glass panels and they are facing challenges to reach the expectation of Apple. This is the main reason for the delay of iPhone 4. With many issues related to signal reception, I guess it is really a good idea to wait for the White iPhone 4 probably until this Christmas season. BTW Apple is giving away free iPhone 4 cases until September 30th.
