It would seem that since the June 2010 launch day, the iPhone 4 has had more problems than successes!
When the first wave of iPhone 4 devices launched in June 2010, Apple had indicated that the white iPhone 4 would be delayed until the second half of July 2010, citing manufacturing problems.
As the July 30 iPhone 4 launch approaches (7 days), Apple today announced that the white iPhone 4 will be further delayed until “later this year”:
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.
For those wondering why the device is constantly delayed, the white iPhone 4 has reportedly been seeing issues due to quality control related to the white coloring on the front glass panel.
At this time, the Canadian iPhone 4 launch is still scheduled for July 30, 2010 but the white iPhone 4 in 16/32GB will not be available.
