In a short statement released before market open, Apple explained that it has been forced to further delay the phone's availability.
"White models of Apple's new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected," it said. "As a result, they will not be available until later this year."
Manufacturing issues already forced Apple to delay availability of the white iPhone once. Last month, a day before the black version of the new phone was due to hit stores, Apple revealed the white iPhone would not be available until the second half of July.
