Apple updates Bumper cases for Verizon iPhone

Apple is now selling updated Bumper cases, offering compatibility with both the GSM and CDMA variants of the iPhone 4, according to a new YouTube video. The video, posted by YouTube user Alerio, shows that Apple has reversed the colors on the packaging—going from predominantly grey to predominantly white for the white model—and has subsequently removed the foil from the Apple logo and iPhone 4 print on the paper backing. As for the case itself, it appears that the volume buttons have stayed in nearly the same position, while the hole for the ring/silent switch has been tweaked and elongated to accomodate for the lower position of the switch on the CDMA model. While it is of little consequence to GSM iPhone 4 owners, users looking to purchase a case compatible with the CDMA model will want to double-check to make sure their Bumper has the new packaging, and thus the larger side opening.

Does this mean they will be changing all bumper cases, including european ones, where the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 is not being released ?

They’ve changed the dock connector opening too.

I hope this means that all bumper cases will be updated (inc. cases in GSM only markets). The only 2 things that annoy me about mine is the silent/ring switch opening being too small and the dock connector being able to fit Apple’s USB/30-pin cable only. This update looks to have solved those two things.
