White iPhone 4 Delays Might Not be Because of Color

As the white iPhone 4 continues to be delayed, the next big Apple question is, “What could possibly go wrong with the same exact phone that’s just a different color?” That’s the million dollar question (or if you’re Apple: answer) that’s yet to be unveiled. I still think Apple is being a little too picky over their pretty white coats, and it could be too that if Apple and suppliers are struggling to meet demand with black iPhones, they’ve decided not to focus on white ones. Some suggest that Apple may release an exclusive white iPhone on Verizon as rumors get louder, but that would be too shady.

Before our heads explode from the myriads of conspiracy theories revolving around a color, MacRumors suggest that the new white iPhones are having serious manufacturing issues. If you’ve seen the HTC Evo leak light at the edges of its frame, the white iPhone 4 is rumored to do it way better.

Apparently, the back light from the iPhone display screen is leaking out around the edges of the glass and seeping through the back of the white phone, according to a person familiar with the manufacturing process.

All Apple has to do is a punch a hole in the Apple logo and we’d finally have that MacBook-like glowing Apple logo many Apple fans have asked for on the phones before. I can see the headlines now: “The White iPhone 4. The World’s Brightest Phone.”
