Apple made more black iPhone 5 than white?

I have a feeling Apple, looking at past customer demand of 4S, made more black iPhones than white iPhones.

It is almost impossible to get a white one because they are all sold out.

I believe traditionally they sell far more black models than they do of the white ones. Therefore they would produce more blacks ones. If its difficult to find a white one, perhaps they underestimated the potential demand for the white. Be patient and you'll find a white one soon enough.

I resent the hell out of this.

I love my white and I'm baggy.

They make more black because it is just more popular (It appeals to everyone, not just girls and guys that where skinny jeans)

How very ignorant and stereotypical of you. White is the new black my friend. Once you go white......well I'm sure there is a witty way to end this sentence.
