White iPhone 4 rumored to go on sale at Best Buy on April 27

White iPhone 4 launch dateIt might be hard to believe, but we may less than 48 hours from the launch of the white iPhone 4. Last week we learned that the fabled pale iPhone was set to debut in the U.K. this week. Now it looks likely that Best Buy will be offering the device beginning this Wednesday.

That news comes after leaked photos popped up on 9to5Mac that appear to be of a Best Buy inventory database. The screenshots indicate that a white iPhone 4 for AT&T’s GSM network will be in stock on April 27. Verizon customers, fear not; 9to5Mac’s sources say that a CDMA version is in the works, too.

According to 9to5Mac, those white iPhone 4s have already been shipped to Best Buy stores in advance of Wednesday’s launch. Over in Europe, white iPhones have already been stocked by retailers in the Netherlands and by the U.K.’s Vodafone, preparing for a release this week across the Atlantic.

If you’re interested in snagging the phone on launch day, you might consider arriving a bit early. According to reports, each Best Buy location will only have about 10 16GB models in stock initially. There’s no word on the number of 32GB expected to be on hand at Best Buy, but they’re expected to be in short supply.

A person holding the Anker MagGo Power Bank.

Power banks are a necessary evil, and even if you don’t consider yourself a “power user” who's likely to drain a phone’s battery in less than a day, there will be times when one comes in handy. And when I am forced to carry one, I want it to be as helpful and versatile as possible.

I’ve been trying Anker’s MagGo Power Bank 10K -- meaning it has a 10,000mAh cell inside it -- and there are three reasons why I'm OK with it taking up valuable space in my bag.

Here’s how Apple could change your iPhone forever

Over the past few months, Apple has released a steady stream of research papers detailing its work with generative AI. So far, Apple has been tight-lipped about what exactly is cooking in its research labs, while rumors circulate that Apple is in talks with Google to license its Gemini AI for iPhones.

But there have been a couple of teasers of what we can expect. In February, an Apple research paper detailed an open-source model called MLLM-Guided Image Editing (MGIE) that is capable of media editing using natural language instructions from users. Now, another research paper on Ferret UI has sent the AI community into a frenzy.

There’s a big problem with the iPhone’s Photos app

While my primary device these days continues to be my iPhone 15 Pro, I’ve dabbled with plenty of Android phones since I’ve been here at Digital Trends. One of my favorite brands of phone has been the Google Pixel because of its strong suite of photo-editing tools and good camera hardware.

Google first added the Magic Eraser capability with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which is a tool I love using. Then, with the Pixel 8 series, Google added the Magic Editor, which uses generative AI to make edits that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. There are also tools like Photo Unblur, which is great for old photographs and enhancing images that were captured with low-quality sensors.
