The much anticipated paler model, tipped for release in June, has done a disappearing act from the Apple website, causing fans to fear the worst.
The beleaguered iPhone 4 SKU was removed from the site displays sometime yesterday, although the other shades remain.
White, it seems, is causing the tech giant a lot of hassle and is easier said than done.
“The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!),” declared Phil Schiller, Apple’s VP of Marketing, last month.
However, Mr Schiller was coy about which model he was referring to, making many industry speculators believe he could have been referring to the impending iPhone 5, nicknamed ‘The Terminator’ due to tis metal casing, also tipped for release on June 20.
However, this date could also now be pie in the sky.
However, the online removal could be just a temporary phenomena, while the tech giant fine tunes its whiter than white smartphone.
So Apple lovers seeking a pale colour scheme will have to make do with a white bumper accessory which is still visible in the Apple store.
