White iPhone is Thicker, Case Owners Upset

 |  |  |  |  |  April 29, 2011


Apparently, the new white iPhones that are finally in stores after months and months of waiting are thicker than the black one. It was bad enough when the Verizon iPhone wouldn’t fit into cases made for the AT&T iPhone. People were confused and had to buy new cases.

Now the geeks who have been waiting for the white iPhone 4 and ran out to get the thing have found that the solution to the long-running manufacturing issues with the white iPhone appears to have been a thicker panel. Viewed up close, the white iPhone 4 is noticeably thicker than the black iPhone 4.

What that means is that cases that are really snug-fitting may not fit the white iPhone 4. I wonder if we will end up seeing cases that are designed for AT&T or Verizon and cases that are designed for the white or black iPhone. A MacRumors reader going by the handle Tipb notes the difference in thickness is 0.2mm, enough to prevent some slider cases from fitting and possibly keep designs other than some sliders from fitting too.
