Philip W. Schiller, Senior vice president of worldwide product marketing at Apple has confirmed via Twitter that a white iPhone will be made available this spring.

@airickanderson Hi Eric. The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!).

Unfortunately he as not mentioned which iPhone he was referring to. Apple has the tendency to launch big products in the late spring period, and with so much speculation of an iPhone 5 announcement, it really raises questions whether this tweet refers to the iPhone 4 or 5.

Apple promised a white version of their iPhone 4 from day one but ran into technical difficulties regarding its design and functionality, and delayed its release for almost a year now. Since last year’s release, they promised to release the white iPhone 4 in July, December and then spring of 2011, so the excitement has pretty much died down now with this announcement.

However, with talks of the iPhone 5 coming this summer, its really difficult to say whether they may have ditched the White iPhone 4 all together in favour of the newer model.
