The Secret of the White iPhone 4–And Why You Don’t Own One–Is Revealed

Oct 15, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The white version of the iPhone has been a sought-after item since it was seen earlier this year when Steve Jobs unveiled the new iPhone 4–and then the white variety never was released. Now, according to SlashGear, the reason for the lack of availability of that model may have finally come to light.

The story says a person with one of the rare white iPhones was spotted at a New York press event and reported that Apple held back on the unit’s release because the manufacturer of the white face plate and the maker of the white “home” button were unable to match their colors.

So it’s not, as some observers thought, that Apple was holding back on the release to work on the troublesome antenna. It’s just that the company, known for its perfectionism, has been unwilling to release components with mismatched shades of white.

The owner of the white iPhone explained that he was able to get his hands on one because he knows someone at Apple–and he added that the company has quite a few of them hanging around its home office.


  1. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  2. Very good information I was searching Yahoo for a little something and stumbled upon this web site of yours. By the way, where can I subscribe to new content?

  3. Love this blog.

  4. Thanks.

  5. Think about I read it two times. Whilst I’m as achieved during this topic, I match together with closings merely because they include up. Provides Thanks and goodluck for you.

  6. High quality info here! Keep up the great work. I love the feelings being expressed.
