iPhone 4S Modification Leads To Potential Case Problems

As the saying goes, ‘if the shoe fits, wear it.’ But this may not be the case with the new iPhone 4S and older case accessories as it has become apparent that a slight modification to the 5th generation offering from Apple could render your iPhone 4 cases completely useless.

Misleading title. The iPhone 4 cases weren't meant for the 4S..end of story.

Edit - I don;t see why ppl have to disagree with's a different product. If iPhone 4 cases happened to fit it, then you all should be chanting cheers of joy, but it's still a different product.

True but many see the 4S as an updated product and not a completely new product (as Apple sees it). The idea that a case change is not needed appears because of this. The devices also looks EXACTLY the same.

OH NOES, iPhone 1 cases do not fit iPhone 2,3,3G,4,4s!!!!!!!!!

Racer-X you have a crazy amount of bubbles lol.

The Verizon iPhone 4 had the same problems with iPhone cases made for the AT&T iPhone 4 since the volume buttons and the lock switch were slighty moved which is why case companies had to make new Verizon iPhone 4 specific cases (or just a bigger side opening). I think any case that fits the Verizon iPhone 4 will fit the 4S. Also the white iPhone 4 was slightly thicker than the black one so I'm guessing the white 4S is thicker than the black one too.

It is something which 95% of people didn't know, personally I assumed my iPhone 4 cases would fit on the the iPhone 4S perfectly...

fatstarr2449d ago

i thought it was the same exact phone except it had an extra speaker slot on the front screen. smh apple lol more proof of the grip that you have on the sheep's in the market.

ngecenk2448d ago

oh no! i'd better cancel my iphone 4s order!


seriously? this is news?

ChrisW2448d ago

Yeah it's news! Because it initially makes people think that their world is going to end... but then they'll realize that their case will work perfectly fine. So... it's short-term news for the "OMG-RLY?!?" crowd.

Speed-Racer2448d ago

Short term is not even the word... this not news whatsoever... this is like saying... well the parts of the 2000 BMW 5 series won't fit the 2005 5 series *Inserts world ends bomb now* cause the phones look the same and OMG apple said they have basically the same outer case.
