Apple delayed the white model for 10 months, following "manufacturing challenges," which may have included the paint peeling under heat and "complications with a sensor."
Although unconfirmed, the general consensus is that Apple will not release a new iPhone in June, breaking three years of tradition. The iPhone may be introduced in September, instead, and the white phone may help boost sales while users wait to upgrade.
The company released white and black models of the iPad 2 last month, and Apple even hinted that the iPhone 4 would get its second colorway soon.
