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 me...it'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.

Madusha4526d ago (Edited 4526d ago )

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...

fatstarr4526d 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.

ngecenk4525d ago

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

/sarcasm

seriously? this is news?

ChrisW4525d 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-Racer4525d 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.

Hype.

Fair play to them. On the ethical hacker side of things I would use the hack as leverage against Apple to continue to support their equipment. As they just dropped support for their iPad mini2’s etc. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with them, they work perfectly fine but are now blocked from receiving security updates etc. So the consumer is forced to purchase a new product that does the exact same thing.
