Case makers gamble on taller 4-inch screen for Apple’s next-gen iPhone

“Third-party protective iPhone cases for a redesigned model with a taller 4-inch screen and a smaller dock connector have begun to appear online in anticipation of Apple’s next-generation handset,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.

“The new cases are now available for purchase form China’s, and were first publicized on Wednesday by Cydia Blog. In addition to a taller screen and smaller dock connector, the cases also show a headphone jack that has been moved to the bottom of the device,” Marsal reports. “The online store also gives customers a warning that it cannot ‘guarantee this product can be used in iPhone 5.'”

Marsal reports, “Last year, third-party case manufacturers bet — and lost — on a redesigned iPhone and began selling products based on a design that never came to be.”
