Without further inspection, XtremeMac's Tuffwrap Shift ($30) for iPhone 4/4S looks like any standard rubber iPhone 4/4S case: available in a variety of colors, it's flexible enough to be easy to take on and off of a device, but has enough structure to maintain its shape. There's coverage for the Sleep/Wake buttons, but all of the other ports and buttons are exposed. What sets Tuffwrap Shift apart is the special rubber the company uses: it's heat sensitive and changes color based on touch, an effect that is most pronounced after holding the case for a few minutes. It then fades back to the standard color after being left alone.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
