News about Apple’s much-delayed white iPhone 4 continues to fly fast and furious, with a new claim from Boy Genius Report suggesting that the model has been canceled entirely instead of merely delayed until next spring as the company announced yesterday.
According to a previous source of ours, we have been told that Apple in fact has no plans to release the white model iPhone 4. Our source hypothesizes another “delay” communicated around March leading us into an iPhone 5 release time-frame in June / July.
Initial reactions to Apple’s announcement yesterday ran along a similar vein, with many forum posters wondering whether Apple truly would release a white iPhone 4 not more than a few months before the company presumably refreshes the entire lineup with the fifth-generation iPhone next June or July.
