According to Fusible, Apple has finally taken possession of the domain names iPhone4.com and WhiteiPhone.com, forwarding those addresses to the company's iPhone pages. Whois listings for the new domains now point to Apple as the owner, with brand protection firm MarkMonitor appearing as the registrar as is customary for Apple's domains.
Apple last month took control of iCloud.com just ahead of its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote where it rolled out the service. The company later registered fifty additional domain names related to the announcements made at the event.
It is unclear just why it has taken a year for Apple to obtain the iPhone4.com domain name, although it is not unusual for Apple to wait significant amounts of time before securing such names, as evidenced by the fact that Apple is just now trying to acquire iPods.com.
