Since the white version of the Apple iPhone hit stores last week, the internet has been replete with stories that it is slightly thicker than its black predecessor. Since our test-happy cousins at Consumer Reports have equipment to measure the thicknesses, they decided to do so.
It’s been nearly a year since the white version of the iPhone 4 was originally supposed to go on sale. There have been numerous rumors of its impending availability, followed by news of further delays. But now Apple says that tomorrow it will finally be selling an iPhone that matches the signature white headphones.
While Apple can’t seem to get around to releasing the elusive White iPhone 4, a teenager in New York City has made over $100,000 in the last few months selling kits to convert iPhone 4s from black to white. Now he says he’s being accused by an investigator of selling stolen property.
Reader Zach says that he heard that white iPhones were cracking, but he got one anyway because there was a longer wait for the black ones. When he got home, he noticed two small cracks in the back of the phone.
