Apple begins refunds, issues another delay

If you’re one of the folks who owns an iPhone 4 and had
purchased a bumper to help with the antenna issues before last week’s press
conference, you could be seeing a little extra money in your account today.

Meanwhile, if you’re hoping to get your hands on one of the
white iPhone 4s, it’s going to take even more time.

Apple has begun automatically refunding purchases for select
customers. The company expects the refunds (and promise of free bumpers to
those who haven’t bought them already) to cost the company $175 million.

Separately, the company announced the new white iPhones were
being delayed a second time – just days after promising them at the end of this
month. Apple now says the devices won’t be available until “later this year”.

“White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be
more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result
they will not be available until later this year,” the company said in a
statement. “The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not
affected.”

The company has additionally stopped taking orders for the
white version of the phone on its Website.
