    We all know, well most of us in the tech world, that the iPhone 5 is highly likely to be announced in the next few months. So how will Apple keep selling White iPhone 4s?


    Let's throw around some theories:

    1. They will just have limited stock for the months leading up to iPhone 5 and have iPhone 5 Black & White take it from there.

    2. They will keep the iPhone 4 selling along with the iPhone 5 BUT the iPhone 4 will be sold in Black & White and the 5 will be sold in ONLY Black in order to sell the White 4 Back stock. May piss off people but sounds like something Apple would do :D

    3. They sell Black & White iPhone 5s along with Black & White 4s but the 4s would be at a lower price. This seems the most likely but hey Apple is unpredictable sometimes.

    Throw me your ideas/thoughts

    I honestly don't think there will be any deviation from their normal way. So option 3.

    This thread makes no sense

    #1 will never happen. They'll sell of the remaining 3GSs, stop making them, and the ip4 will slip in its spot (just like last year when they stopped making the 3G)

    #2 won't happen because Apple has gone out of its way to explain that they've figured out an effective process (saying the iPad 2 would ship in white from day 1)

    #3 is what will happen

    When the iPhone 5 comes (black and white, 32GB & 64GB from day one) they will continue to sell the iPhone 4 (in black only) 16GB.

    seems kind of messy.

    i think they will discontinue the white iphone 4 the second the iphone 5 comes out. black iphone 4 will be their low end offering and anyone who wants white will then have to buy iphone 5.

    I expect #3 as well. The million dollar question is when they will sell the 5 and what will it be. :apple:

    That's why I said "throw some ideas around". They sold iPad 2 in White from day 1 because it was just the front bezel that was white, the issue was with the back panel mostly.

    Yes 3 is most likely.

    All it needs is an Apple logo, nothing else matters.
