Apple’s new iPhone 4 Bumper cases are causing issues with prior-generation Apple cables and earlier headphones. A number of readers have reported that older Apple and third-party accessories are incompatible with the very tight port holes on the new Bumper cases, leaving owners unable to use many third-party cables and headphones. Notably, Apple’s own included cables and headphones should fit without issue, as tested by iLounge with both white and black Bumper cases.
