“After 10 months of delays, the white iPhone 4 has arrived, and at closer inspection it turns out it’s not only late, but also thicker than its black sibling,” Daniel Ionescu reports for PCWorld. “The difference is very small, 0.2 millimeters to be more precise, but it’s enough to give headaches to some users who would find their cases wouldn’t fit on the white iPhone 4.”
“The difference, from roughly 9.3mm thickness of the black iPhone to 9.5mm of the white model, doesn’t come from the steel frame of the device, but from the white glass part on the front of the device,” Ionescu reports. “Apple doesn’t list any difference in thickness on its website between the white and black iPhone 4.”
Ionescu reports, “Initial tests indicate that Apple’s bumper cases, and most cases that aren’t subject to depth will still fit the thicker white iPhone 4, but if you plan on buying a case for your shiny new white iPhone 4, it would be best to check if it fits first.”
