Apple removed all the images of white iPhone 4 from their online store. The output of this unit was planned for this spring.
According to the 9 to Mac website, on April. 6 Apple briefly closed the Apple Store – it usually happens when the company introduces a new product. At the same time the only change in store was the disappearance of information about white iPhone 4 out of inventory systems.
In addition, images of white iPhone 4 disappeared from the galleries, as well as from the description of plates, “bumpers” for the iPhone 4.

White iPhone 4 was supposed to appear on sale simultaneously with the black unit in June 2010. On June, 23 Apple announced that due to production difficulties white smartphone will be released in July. Then the release of it was postponed to the end of 2010, then – at the beginning of 2011, then – in spring. The fact that sales of white iPhone 4 will begin in spring was confirmed in the microblog of senior marketing vice president of for Apple Phil Schiller.
The cause of delay, presumably, became the light transmission of the body of white iPhone 4. Because of this photographs made by the built-in camera were overexposed.
However, fans of iPhone, who dreamt of white device, could make their dream true using removable panels. The disappearance of the white iPhone 4 from the Apple website most likely indicates that the device will never be on sale. Let’s hope that iPhone 5 will be available for sale in black and white colour.
