Why is the white iPhone 4 more difficut to manufacture?

When Apple announced the iPhone 4, the company indicated that it would come in either black or white. However an official Apple statement later explained the white model was harder than the black one to manufacture and as a result, the release of the white iPhone 4 was delayed. Yet, Apple never explained the reasons that made the white models more challenging to make.

Since it's release on April 28, 2011, Apple has announced that the reason for the delay was due to ensuring that the white iPhone had sufficient UV protection from the sun.

No reason has been given by Apple on this one - my guess is that Apple has had difficulties with its suppliers. Making a white case instead of a black one is hardly rocket science.
