iPhone 5 Fall Release makes Room for White iPhone 4 Spring Release

The never ending white iPhone 4 delay is supposed to come to an end this Spring. Apple's Phil Schiller tweeted recently that the white iPhone 4 will be available this Spring. It is also supposed to be a beauty. In February I wrote that its best to pass on the white iPhone 4. Why buy a white iPhone 4 that will be replaced a couple month later with the iPhone 5. Now things look a bit different. New rumors around the WWDC 2011 conference suggest that Apple will not release the iPhone 5 as expected in June. Apple is supposed to release it in Fall with iOS 5.

Now the white iPhone 4 release can be seen as a hold over for those who cannot wait until Fall to get a new iPhone. The question is if the white iPhone 4 will have anything different besides the color. The white iPhone 4 will likely be almost a year delayed. I expect Apple to start selling it in May. By adding just a little bit Apple could make the white iPhone 4 more enticing. How about a better antenna design or the A5 CPU that is inside the iPad 2 already?

The problem will be that Apple is not going to confirm that the iPhone 5 is coming this Fall. So when you buy the white iPhone 4 on contract in May, you might get stuck with an outdated iPhone come WWDC 2011 in June. Sometimes when the rumors before a big Apple event turn into a very different direction, Apple could be behind it. A good example was the sudden rumors about the $1,000 price tag of the original iPad. When Apple announced that the iPad was only $499 the surprise effect was huge.

About the iPhone 4:
The Apple iPhone 4 measures 4.5" x 2.31" x 0.37" and weighs 4.8 ounces. It can be had in 16GB or 32GB capacity and records 720p video and has a 5MP still camera. FaceTime video calls can be made on the phone and it has WiFi, Bluetooth, and lots more.
