Verizon and White iPhone 4, evidence that Apple had a plan

Since the current iPhone was announced last year, the white version has been somewhat of a nemesis for Apple. The device was constantly delayed and for a while we didn’t think the handset would ever come out. But with the Verizon and white iPhone 4, is this evidence that Apple had a plan all along?

The White iPhone 4 is finally coming out for consumers, we told you a few days ago that deliveries were starting to arrive in the US, and one lucky Vodafone customer in the UK even got one early. It is thought that Verizon customers will be getting the device, and retailers such as Best Buy will also be stocking it.

With this latest release why would Apple bring out the iPhone 5 in the next couple of months? We have been reporting for a while that it looks like any new iPhone won’t be available until September at the earliest and this is looking more likely now.

After the launch of the Verizon model and now the white version, it wouldn’t make sense for Apple to bring another new model out in the summer as they normally do. Could have Apple been planning to do things this way ever since the iPhone 4 was first announced last June?

There is a chance their plans changed after the white iPhone was delayed, and a handset was made available for Verizon. What do you think? Was this the way Apple planned things to go?
