Apple also working on fix for proximity sensor
Apple has finally confirmed a date for the iPhone 4 international launch, which will bring the device to 17 additional countries on July 30. The list originally included 18 countries, however the South Korean release has been delayed.
Aside from the international versions, the company has also promised that the white variant will arrive sometime at the end of the month. The first batch will be in limited quantities, although it is still unclear how much of the demand the supply will be able to satisfy.
Although Apple rejected the idea that a future firmware update will further address the iPhone 4 reception issues, the company is still tracking problems related to the proximity sensors on certain handsets. A fix is promised with the next iOS update.
Countries to get the iPhone 4 on July 30 include Australia, Austria, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, China, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
