Rumor: White iPhone 4 to Land in Stores End of April

Apple is finally releasing the white model of the iPhone 4, almost a year behind schedule, according to a report.

Multiple sources told Bloomberg that Apple was preparing to release the white iPhone 4 by the end of April for both the Verizon and AT&T networks, 10 months after the black model debuted.

Apple said earlier this year that the white iPhone 4 was delayed until this spring due to manufacturing problems, but never specified the issue. One source tells Bloomberg that one problem was the white paint peeling under heat.

The different color option could provide a possible alternative to buyers eagerly awaiting the fifth-generation iPhone, which may not be released this summer. Sources told Apple blogger Jim Dalrymple that an iPhone 5 would not be introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, even though iPhone upgrades have traditionally been launched at this annual event.

For Apple, releasing an iPhone 5 later would make sense, because it would give the white iPhone, as well as the two-month-old Verizon iPhone 4, some more shelf life.
