The white iPhone 4 from Apple has been a unicorn for the mobile industry of sorts, having been spotted from time to time and yet never really managed to make the jump from imagination to the corporeal world, although recent developments might suggest otherwise. Word has it that Apple has worked together with a Japanese company as they intend to develop a new material which would fix issues that have long delayed the white iPhone 4. This new paint material will offer greater control and precision when it comes to the thickness of the paint layer being applied to the handsets, as previous attempts have failed miserably to live up to Apple’s exacting standards. Unless you’re Steve Wozniak, you will still need to wait for a white iPhone 4 to hit the market – in due process, hopefully. Keep your fingers crossed!
