Wozniak Confirms Issues with White iPhone 4

The white iPhone 4 has been on the way for a while and, after several delays, rumors as to why Apple is having trouble producing the device are rife. One of the more widely believed reports is that the white casing has resulted in a degradation in image quality on the phone’s camera. Though it seems plausible, Apple has neither confirmed nor denied this rumor. This past weekend, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak did.

Speaking to Engadget editor Joshua Topolosky, the part-time Appler admitted he actually ordered the parts for the white iPhone from the New York teen that managed to obtain them from Foxconn. Woz said that when he tried to take a picture with his newly reassembled white iPhone 4 (flash on) it looked as if the photograph had been taken through cellophane.

Woz went on to say that Apple has since solved this problem and that the white iPhone 4 should be available soon. Now the question for those who’ve waited this long: will you wait for the white iPhone 5 or do you plan to rush out and buy the white iPhone 4 as soon as its available?

  • Wait so the back of the phone is one piece of plastic?
    If it isn't why didn't they just use the same plastic's that covers the optics that they used for the original iPhone 4?

    Apple and their complicated methods ugh.

    If somebody want's to enlighten me on how they produce their backplate please do so, I'm confused..

  • joytech22,

    Why don't you set up a company and roll out couple of phones to compete against Apple?
    Hey, which products are really free of plastics? I know even some of the top end Super cars have plastic parts in them so why fuss about Apple's processes? Having said that, I would agree on improving the plastic quality.

    I must be missing something, Apple must be producing the plastic as one piece if they can't apply such a simple fix that I posted in my first post, otherwise it would have been that simple.

    Or I could just be completely ignorant and be missing the bigger picture to making plastic?
