    Default White iPhone 4 Pulled off Online Store


    Following days of rumors about the almost-mythical white iPhone 4, the model has suddenly been pulled off the online Apple Store, prompting a fresh flood of rumors that it has been cancelled. Though images of the device still appear in the iPhone gallery, the disappearance of any direct reference to the model adds credence to reports that Apple will at least hold off on white iPhones until the release of the fifth-generation device in June or July.

    The white iPhone has had an extremely checkered history to date: Gruber at Daring Fireball compares it to Lindsey Lohan in a hilarious R-rated skit that plays off how erratic Apple has been since announcing the device. It was delayed as soon as it was announced, and when Apple's self-imposed deadline approached, the company pushed it back until later in the year. And as we reported yesterday, Apple just announced another delay, to spring of next year. Now, the device - which used to be listed as "unavailable for pre-order or in-store pickup" - is nowhere to be found on the webpage or on the Apple Store app. It could be that they decided that it was too confusing for consumers to have an unavailable product on the website. However, the removal happened at just the same time a new rumor claimed that the white iPhone had been canceled altogether.

    A post went up on the Boy Genius Report last night quoting an anonymous source who claims "that Apple in fact has no plans to release the white model iPhone 4." This source also "hypothesized" (meaning: guessed) that there would be another announcement of a delay sometime around March, which would put the white iPhone's ETA in the same timeframe as the expected release of the next generation device in summer. BGR also claims that a separate manufacturing source had no information about any further problems, and the post speculated that the delay might be "something else going on behind the scenes" without elaborating.

    I've checked my sources and the various corners of the interwebs, and this appears to be absolute, unadulterated rumor and speculation at this point. Just looking at it analytically, though, it would be ridiculous for Apple to bring out a white iPhone 4 in spring, when we'll all be talking about the rumors that the iPhone 5 will be made of unobtainium, or will make you immortal or something. The iPhone 4 will drop in price as soon as the fifth-generation model comes out, and who knows, maybe we'll see it come out in two colors. This has all the hallmarks of classic Apple guerilla marketing, though. There's no way the white iPhone would have gotten so much attention if it weren't for all this drama.

    What I find funny about this is how white iPhones are still being shown on the bumper page.

    Actually it's pretty hard I took a look at the oem parts and they're kinda off white, comparing the back and digitizer to the home button, 3GS, and even magic mouse it pretty obvious and im positive it's the manufacturers fault

    Am I the only one who could care less if they ever came out with a white iPhone 4? Hell, I'll buy a white case and call it a day.

    White iPhone 4 looks ugly on the front anyway. The black is sexy all around. It just fits, the black crisp color. Way better than the 3G and 3GS black.

    I think they're gonna do what they did with the transition from 3G to 3GS. They'll probably bot put out an "iPhone 5", I think they'll go with an iPhone 4 mini, different colors, or something along those lines. I don't see much room for improvement in the upcoming months or any rad, new idea that would be so substantial to dub a newer model "iPhone 5" just a year later.

    Was waiting for white myself..... sucks to be me! Oh well next time I won't wait for a color! Apple should just make black ones and forget the white!

    May be the white iPhone 4 will never be available. Unless Apple changes the antenna into something that is nonmetallic, or maybe it has to relocate the antenna all together, who knows? But wouldn't that be pretty much a different phone?

    most likely manufacturer, i would have just though apple could see this being a problem sooner to avoid all this.
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
