Apple Store Down - White iPhone On the Way?

141034 white iphone 4

The Online Apple Store went down tonight, which can mean new product updates. Late night downtime, however, typically points to maintenance.

One tweet claims that the downtime is related to the launch of the long-delayed white iPhone. The new iPhone parts are claimed to be MC604X/A (16GB) and MC606X/A (32GB) for the White model. The news is attributed to a forum poster who frequently has access to last minute part number lists which have been accurate in the past.

Update: The store returned with a new design but no white iPhone.
