When the was first introduced back in 2007, white was the only colour you could get. Fast forward to the fourth generation of ’s smartphone, though, and you can’t get a white for love or money. We still don’t know exactly why that is – after all, it was shown on stage by Steve Jobs when unveiling the black version mid-last year, but whatever the , it looks like Apple has got to the bottom of it and is finally ready to unleash its iconic white handset on the world. Apple vice-president Phil Schiller revealed as much this week when he wrote on Twitter: “the white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!)” Rumours to that effect had already been doing the rounds, but it’s the first time an official Apple source has gone on the record to confirm that the lesser-spotted handset is indeed incoming. Many observers had doubted Apple would press ahead with plans to release the white iPhone 4 so close to the iPhone 5’s expected announcement in June. And indeed, some are interpreting the fact that Schiller says only the “white iPhone” rather than the “white iPhone 4” as a sign that in fact he’s referring to the iPhone 5’s unveiling and that in his book, June still qualifies as “spring”. We’ll simply have to wait and see.
