    Yeah, Apple had to reassign several thousand engineers to fix the light bleeding on the white iPhone. Therefore the '11 iMac and Mac Pro updates have been canceled. Better luck next year.

    :rolleyes:

    sth that's not what i meant at all. All I simply meant was that given that there has been at least 2 weeks between product releases this year is it likely that if as is being reported the whit iPhone is release this week the 27th I believe, will the iMac not be seen till mid may at no point did i ever suggest it wasn't coming this year?

    I don't think it will affect the iMac. It's simply another color choice as opposed to a totally new product and the two products have zero overlap.

    Even if the iMac comes out two weeks after the white iPhone: Who says that the iMac wasn't planned for that release date anyway? In short: We'll never know if the white iPhone release does anything to their normal release schedule.

    Could even be that they release both at the same day.

    Maybe they will release both the White iPhone and the new iMac on the same day.

    I'm not saying I know anything, but heck if anyone else can start a rumor ...

    Why not me! :D

    Despite the meaning of the word rumor, what is posted here on MacRumors is usually not without evidence, nor would anyone in their right mind appreciate simple guesswork or wishful thinking.

    That being said, I think it is in Apple's best interest to release the new iMacs as soon as possible, and a new iPhone color is not likely to cause a two week delay for that.

    A different coloured iPhone wouldn't flood the apple website with that much traffic, would it?
    Realistically, what have they got to lose? People that know the new edition is coming out are willing to buy the thing day one, no questions asked, so... why wait?

    I was worried about it delaying it but to be honest i don't think it will.

    It's not a 'new product' its the same product in a different colour and from the polls on the front page the vast majority of people wont buy one.

    And lets be fair anyone waiting for a new imac isn't going to buy a white iphone before there imac are they?

    As long as Apple can independently manage two supply chains, I don't think it'll make a difference.
