Phil Schiller recently confirmed that the elusive white iPhone 4 will “be available this spring.” Schiller announced the news yesterday, via Twitter.
In response to one Apple fan asking about the white handset, Schiller stated:
@airickanderson Hi Eric. The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!).
The white iPhone 4 was supposed to launch along with the black version last June. However, that did not happen. A series of delays have left most Apple fans not really caring about the white handset (mainly, because they’ve settled for the black version).
Furthermore, Apple will most likely release a new, fifth generation iPhone in summer. Are people really going to buy an iPhone 4, when they can wait a couple of months and buy an iPhone 5?
A further speculation would be that Schiller is referring to the fifth generation iPhone. After all, spring technically ends on June 20 – perhaps this is all one sneaky publicity stunt.
